Tinea Corporis

Dermatophyte infection of the skin including lesions of the trunk and limbs. All known dermatophytes may produce lesions. Infection is acquired from an active lesion of an animal, by direct human contact, or from soil. Spread from existing localized infection, e.g. feet, is not uncommon. Characteristic lesions are circular and sharply marginated with a raised edge. Scaling is a common but not constant finding. Lesions may also be eczematous, vesicular and pustular in nature.
