MOLINA-LEYVA, Alejandro; PEREZ-PARRA, Santiago  e  GARCIA-GARCIA, Federico. Case for diagnosis. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2014, vol.89, n.5, pp.839-840. ISSN 1806-4841.  https://doi.org/10.1590/abd1806-4841.20143237.

Majocchi's granuloma is a persistent supurative folliculitis, associated with a deep granulomatous reaction induced by dermatophytes. There are two clinical forms of Majocchi's granuloma: the superficial form that appears in healthy individuals after localized trauma; and the nodular form, which occurs in inmunocompromised patients. We present a case of nodular Majocchi's granuloma on the forearm of an immunocompetent patient. Microbiological culture and examination of a deep aspiration sample identified Trichophyton rubrum. Collecting a deep sample of tissue is essential in achieving a good diagnostic performance.
