Abstract|ملخص البحث

The objective of this study is to characterize mycetoma using ultrasonography and to describe the incidence of mycetoma. This study carried out in soba university hospital in Khartoum state during the period extended from November 2012 to 18 March-2013, using high quality ultrasound machine type, Aloka SSD 3500 with high frequency transducer (7.5 MHz). A total of 100 patients, their ages ranging between 10 to 50 years, suffering from the foot mycetoma. Most of the patients used in this study had undergone routine plain x-ray before coming for ultrasound examination. The main findings of this study show the foot mycetoma more common in males (76%), Most common affected age intervals (21-30) years, 32 cases, and (31-40) years (32%), the most common area from Aljazeera state (57%) and the fungal type (78%) is more than bacterial type (22%). The study revealed that the major of the patients were workers 61 (61%). The types of Mycetoma were, 22 (22%) actinomycetoma and 78 (78%) were Euomycetoma. Ultrasound appearance of Mycetoma with Grain 51(51%) .It was found that 67 (67%) with intact, and verified that the ultrasound examination of foot mycetoma is simple, reproducible, and low cost. The study concluded that ultrasound and Doppler has high efficiency in diagnosing mycetoma with high accuracy in diagnosis of mycetoma and even in differential diagnosis of its types. It must be used as first diagnostic tool. Keywords: Mycetoma, Actinomycetoma, Eumycetoma Sudan, ultrasound, granuloma
