Changing Concepts and Current Definition of Majocchi's Granuloma.

Mycopathologia 2020 Feb 11;185(1):187-192. Epub 2019 Jul 11.

Westerdijk Fungal Biodiversity Institute, Utrecht, The Netherlands.

Dermatophytic granuloma characterized by perifollicular granulomatous inflammation was first described by Domenico Majocchi and was later named after him, Majocchi's granuloma (MG). Although the initial description was related to a dermatophyte Trichophyton tonsurans, later reports linked MG to non-dermatophytes (Phoma, Aspergillus, Malbranchea), which led to a confusion of disease patterns caused by cutaneous pathogens and general opportunistic microorganisms. Furthermore, several causative agents of MG described in the literature were not confirmed as such. Read More

Department and Clinic of Dermatology, Karol Marcinkowski University of Medical Sciences, Poznan, Poland; Department of Medical Mycology and Dermatology, Poznan University of Medical Sciences, Poznan, Poland.

Majocchi's granuloma is a folliculitis caused by dermatophytes, which is most commonly located on the skin of the lower limbs in women. A favorable factor for the infection is an injury caused by epilation, which, together with an existing fungal infection, can lead to the spread of folliculitis to other parts of the body. The disease is extremely rare (Burgdorf et al. Read More
