Congenital ichthyosis associated with Trichophyton rubrum tinea, imitating drug hypersensitivity reaction.

Med Mycol Case Rep 2020 Sep 29;29:15-17. Epub 2020 May 29.

Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Oncodermatology, Medical Faculty, University of Pécs, Pécs, 7632, Hungary.

Tinea corporis and congenital ichthyoses are common dermatological diseases. The association of the two disorders is plausible due to the immunological and barrier defects of ichthyoses; however, relatively limited literature is available in this field. Since superficial fungal infections possess atypical morphology in keratinization disorders, and could imitate other dermatological conditions, the correct diagnosis can be challenging. Read More

Pseudomycetoma is an extremely rare deep mycosis, caused by dermatophytic fungi that penetrate the tissue from infected follicles of tinea capitis. Both clinically and histopathology are similar to eumycetoma, being distinguished through the isolation of the fungus, which in the case of pseudomycetoma can be Microsporum spp. or Trichophyton spp. Read More

Psoriasis-like tinea incognita: a case report and literature review.

Acta Dermatovenerol Alp Pannonica Adriat 2020 Mar;29(1):43-45

Department of Dermatovenereology, Ljubljana University Medical Center, Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Tinea incognita is an atypical presentation of fungal infection of the skin, the clinical presentation of which has been modified by misuse of topical corticosteroids or calcineurin inhibitors. Such dermatophyte infections often have an atypical clinical presentation and are difficult to diagnose, but with the rise of immunosuppressive drugs and self-prescribed topical therapies, they are becoming increasingly prevalent. Here we report the case of a 68-year-old male patient with a history of psoriasis, presenting with erythematous scaly lesions, that did not respond to conventional treatment for psoriasis, as would be expected.
