Abstract

POZIOMCZYK, Claudia Schermann et al. Tinea pseudoimbricata caused by M. gypseum associated to crusted scabies. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2010, vol.85, n.4, pp. 558-559. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962010000400022.

Tinea pseudoimbricata is related to T. tonsurans and T. rubrum and crusted scabies is a highly contagious dermatosis caused by excessive proliferation of S. scabiei var. hominis. We described a case of a 21-year-old patient, seronegative for HIV, with both skin diseases. The occurrence of these dermatosis simultaneously in immunocompetent patients is very rare.
