Five patients had kerion celsi on the glabrous skin. Four of these were farmers, and one was a veterinarian. The lesions occurred on the distal part of the forearm of four patients and in the breast area of one patient, most occurring during the spring months. Several of the lesions were misdiagnosed as bacterial infections or nondermatophytic fungal infections and were treated as such. Our report calls attention to this atypical form of localized inflammatory infection caused by tinea. (J AM ACAD DERMATOL 7:490-494, 1982.)
