Vulvar Majocchi granuloma and kerion formation in an immunocompetent female
Published Web Locationhttps://doi.org/10.5070/D3259045510
We report a rare case of vulvar Majocchi granuloma and kerion formation secondary to Trichophyton in an immunocompetent woman. The patient responded well to oral terbinafine and a short course of oral corticosteroids with a slow taper. Resolution of deep dermatophytosis requires prompt pathogen identification and treatment to avoid scarring and hair loss. Herein, we aim to increase clinical awareness and early recognition of this atypical presentation of a Majocchi granuloma with kerion formation.
