Tinea capitis in adults over fifty years of age



Tinea capitis in adults over fifty years of age



Cutis 41(4): 251-252



An 89-year-old black women was examined for generalized folliculitis of the sclap that proved to be tinea capitis caused by Trichophyton tonsurans. To our knowledge, she is the oldest known patient with this condition to be reported to date. Although it is uncommon in adults, this condition must be considered when clinicians are evaluating patients with hair loss and nonspecific scalp dermatitis.
