Tinea capitis mimicking dissecting cellulitis.
Pediatr Dermatol. 2013 Nov-Dec; 30(6):753-4.PD

Abstract

Tinea capitis is a common disease of childhood that typically follows one of several clinical patterns. Our patient and several previously reported cases demonstrate the existence of a dissecting cellulitis-like presentation of tinea capitis. This variant should be recognized to prevent misdiagnosis of dissecting cellulitis and allow proper treatment to prevent scarring alopecia.
