Botryomycosis is a rare bacterial infection that can involve the skin and viscera. It is multifocal in development, characterized by granulomatous bacterial infection. The organisms form granules, which are composed of bacterial masses that are adhered to each other. Here, we describe one unusual case of culture proved Staphylococcus aureus induced botryomycosis in patients with the acquired immune deficiency syndrome who was successfully treated.
