Tinea Imbricata in an Italian Child and Review of the Literature.
Mycopathologia 2015; 180(5-6):353-7M

Abstract

Tinea imbricata is a chronic superficial mycosis caused by Trichophyton concentricum. It is characterized by widespread, annular, concentric, squamous lesions. Tinea imbricata is endemic in three geographical areas: Southwest Pacific, Southeast Asia, and Central and South America. Tinea imbricata in travelers returning from endemic areas is exceptionally rare. We report a case of tinea imbricata in an Italian child who acquired the infection during a trip to Solomon Islands. Three cultures were positive for T. concentricum. The patient was successfully treated with griseofulvin and terbinafine cream.
