Background: Mycetoma is a common health problem in many tropical and subtropical regions. Yet and despite its devastating deformities, disability, high morbidly and negative socioeconomic impacts, it is one of the most neglected diseases worldwide and it is even neglected by the neglected diseases initiatives across the globe (Fahal and Hassan, 1992; Fahal, 2004; Fahal and van de Sandy, 2012; Fahal; 2010).
