Abstract

ROSSETTO, André Luiz  and  CRUZ, Rosana Cé Bella. Spontaneous cure in a case of Tinea nigra. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2012, vol.87, n.1, pp. 160-162. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962012000100029.

The authors report a case (in Itajai, Santa Catarina State, Brazil) of tinea nigra in a 4-year-old female child which spontaneously healed. We discuss the clinical and epidemiological aspects of the mycosis and this rare case of spontaneous healing.
