Many patients tend to present late with advanced disease where amputation of the affected part may be the only possible treatment. Most of these patients are from under-developed communities and hence one of the MRC important objectives is to improve the mycetoma endemic areas communities.
To execute this, staff members have conducted many field trips to various mycetoma endemic areas and that included Sinnar, Gazeria and the White Nile States. In these areas out-patients clinics were established, house to house surveys were conducted and patients were encourage to attend these clinics. Patients were treated and complicated cases where referred to MRC or nearby general hospitals for further treatment.
