An 8-yr-old with scaly rashes on the trunk. Is it Tinea Imbr
The present case has been published in the Journal of Pediatrics. An 8-year-old boy living in Gua Musang, Malaysia, presented with a 2-year history of a round, concentric, and scaly rash on his trunk. The rash was itchy and progressively spread to involve approximately 80% of the body surface area.

His 32-year-old mother and 1-year-old sister had similar lesions. His history was otherwise unremarkable. Dermatologic examination revealed generalized concentric, annular, scaly, lamellar plaques with an overlapping-ring appearance over his trunk, limbs, and palmoplantar surfaces. The face, scalp, hair, and nails were spared.

A clinical diagnosis of tinea imbricata was made based on the characteristic clinical findings. Microscopic examination of skin scrapings in 10% potassium hydroxide showed closely packed short septate hyphae and no arthroconidia. Culture of the skin scrapings in Sabouraud Dextrose Agar grew Trichophyton concentricum. The patient was treated with oral terbinafine 125 mg daily for 8 weeks with complete clearance of the lesions.
