Abstract

Tinea corporis is an infective skin disease resulting from invasion and proliferation by the causal fungi in the stratum corneum. The fungi most commonly involved are Microsporum canis, Trichophyton rubrum, and Trichophyton mentagrophytes. It most commonly involves exposed parts of the body, but can affect any site. Typical lesions are annular in shape, with a raised scaling erythematous edge. The presence of perifollicular granulomatous papules (Majocchi’s granuloma) is a definite indication for systemic treatment.
