Granuloma, fungal (Majocchi's)

Overview

This is a picture of a fungal granuloma, a large, red (erythematous) patch (plaque) with a prominent border. Within the borders of the lesion are scattered blisters (pustules) that indicate deeper involvement of hair follicles (Majocchi's granuloma). This dermatophyte infection was caused by Trichophyton rubrum.
