Resumo: Tinea corporis is a dermatophyte infection of the body. It usually begins as a pruritic circular or oval erythematous scaling patch or plaque that spreads centrifugally. Multiple lesions may run together to produce “flower petal” configurations. Tinea corporis contracted from infected animals is often intensely inflammatory. The history and clinical picture combination is characteristic, but the diagnosis could be confirmed by KOH (potassium hydroxide) examination of scrapings from the lesions. Tinea corporis usually responds to the daily application of topical antifungals, but systemic therapy is needed in patients who have failed topical therapy. We report a case of a two-year old girl with tinea corporis of the vulvar region, initially misdiagnosed as irritant diaper dermatitis.
