Tinea faciei: a report on four cases.

Abstract

Four cases of tinea faciei that were observed at the Department of Dermatology of Charles Nicolle Hospital in Tunis are reported. All patients were females, ages 54 (patient 1), 38 (patient 2), 30 (patient 3), and 50 (patient 4). The lesions lasted 1 year, 2 months, 4 months, and 1 month, respectively. Tinea faciei was initially suspected in three patients, whereas for the second patient eczema was initially suspected. She was first treated topically with corticosteroids leading to exacerbation. Through mycological examination, Trichophyton rubrum was isolated in three patients, but was negative in patient 2. Three patients recovered completely after one month of griseofulvin associated with topical terbinafine. Patient 3 was topically treated because she was pregnant. Erythematous lesions of the face must be checked for fungi.
