History:

Four clinical types of tinea infections may associate with each other i.e one type may predispose to other types and so may present in any combination, these types are tinea cruris, tinea pedis, tinea unguium and tinea manun. The current case is an example of such combinations (tinea cruris and tinea manum) of three months duration. KOH was positive and excellent response to systemic griseofulvin was obtained.
