Differential Diagnosis


A 17-year-old wrestler presented with an oval red patch with a scaly erythematous margin and clear hypopigmented center. The patient described a relatively slow peripheral extension of the lesion over a period of three months. A new rounded erythematous patch involving the lateral part of the right eyebrow has appeared at last three weeks. The patient gave history of contact during training matches with another wrestler who has had similar lesions on the face. Scraping of scales examined after KOH preparation revealed fungal hyphae and spores.
