 en TINEA FACIEI PRESENTING BUTTERFLY ERYTHEMA IN A BOY
Şener, Serpil

Abstract

Tinea faciei is the most frequently misdiagnosed entity among cutaneous fungal infections. The atypical clinical features support the separation of this disease from tinea corporis. This often lacks a distinct raised scaly border, and may mimic a photodermatosis such as lupus erythematosus or dermatomyositis. Other photodermatoses to consider include polymorphous light eruption, contact dermatitis, and rosacea. In this article, a 9-year-old boy with tinea faciei presenting butterfly rash was reported because of its rarity.
