Pustular psoriasis-like tinea incognito due to Trichophyton rubrum.Mycoses. 2007 Nov; 50(6):523-4.M
Tinea incognito describes fungal infections with atypical clinical features and is usually caused by administration of steroids. We describe an 11-year-old girl who presented with widespread erythematous and pustular lesions being treated with topical corticosteroid. The diagnosis was confirmed by mycological examination including culture. Complete clinical resolution was observed with oral and topical antimycotic treatment.
