Tinea capitis due to Trichophyton rubrum in a 3-month-old infant.Mycoses. 2006 Sep; 49(5):439-40.M
Tinea capitis as a result of Trichophyton rubrum has very rarely been reported in infants. A 3-month-old girl with tinea capitis as a result of T. rubrum is reported. Our patient was treated with a 3-week course of oral fluconazole, which resulted in clearance of the scalp lesion. To our knowledge this case is the first in the literature in which fluconazole was used to treat T. rubrum tinea capitis in children.
