Tinea Corporis Due to Trichophyton erinacei Probably Transmitted from a Hedgehog.
Med Mycol J. 2018; 59(4):E77-E79.MM

Abstract

A 26-year-old female homemaker presented with an approximately 2-month history of an erythematous lesion with agminated seropapules in the right popliteal fossa associated with scales and crusts. The lesion was initially treated as contact dermatitis, but there was no improvement. KOH examination revealed filamentous fungi. The fungal culture was positive, and the morphological characteristics were identical to those of Trichophyton mentagrophytes complex. The fungus was identified as T. erinacei based on genetic analysis. This is the second case report of human tinea corporis due to this fungus in Japan.
