We report a case of a 56-year-old Brazilian woman, with relapsing lepromatous leprosy, and onychomycosis caused by a non-dermatophyte filamentous fungi. The pathogenic fungi was identified as Arthrinium arundinis and treated with chemical abrasion of the nail with 40% urea and application of terbinafine cream. Onychomycosis caused by Arthrinium species is rare, and this is the second reported case.
