Cases of kerion Celsi are reported in 9 women and 12 men. Fungi responsible included Trichophyton verrucosum (18 patients), T. mentagrophytes (2) and T. rubrum (1). The majority of the patients were of farming stock and had direct contact with cattle. The clinical picture was frequently interpreted as bacterial infection and was wrongly treated with antibiotics and incision.
