Laboratory of Medical Mycology, Jining No. 1 People's Hospital, Jining, 272000, People's Republic of China.

Impetigo, commonly caused by bacteria, is characterized by lesions of pustules, bullae or golden yellow crusts; it is seldom caused by fungi. Here, we report one case of a 17-year-old female patient with a 1-month history of erythematous pustules on her left cheek. She was clinically diagnosed with "impetigo", but did not respond to 1 week of treatment with topical mupirocin cream (antibacterial agent). Read More

J Cutan Aesthet Surg 2021 Oct-Dec;14(4):443-445

Department of Dermatology and STD, University College of Medical Sciences and Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital, Delhi, India.

As tinea capitis rarely affects infants, early trichoscopic diagnosis facilitates timely institution of appropriate therapy. We report a 10-month-old female presenting with mixed pattern tinea capitis and coexisting tinea faciei wherein trichoscopy showed perifollicular scaling, comma hair, corkscrew hair, and horse-shoe hair. Case 2 was a 3-month-old female with gray patch tinea capitis, corroborated by the presence of perifollicular scaling, comma hair, corkscrew hair, and prominent telangiectasia on trichoscopy.
