Abstract

In the present cases we describe two normal patients who developed extensive tinea corporis that was complicated by multiple subcutaneous papules and pustule caused by Trichophyton rubrum. This form of dermatophytosis has only rarely been described. Two 18 and 20-year-old men were examined for tinea corporis. Direct KOH preparations from skin scrapings showed septate branching mycelium and arthroconidia in both patients. T. rubrum was also identified in cultures.
