'Tinea indecisiva' may mimic the concentric rings of tinea imbricata



'Tinea indecisiva' may mimic the concentric rings of tinea imbricata



British Journal of Dermatology 147(2): 384



An unusual clinical presentation of tinea corporis in 2 patients due to Trichophyton mentagrophytes and T. tonsurans is described [UK]. Both patients had received topical corticosteroids and antifungals for several months because of indecision about the aetiology of the skin condition. The patients presented with a rash consisting of widespread annular concentric erythematous rings, which has been previously described in tinea imbricata due to T. concentricum.
