Superficial Fungal Infections Diagnosis

Tinea corporis-vesicular. On rare occasions, a marked inflammatory response to the presence of a dermatophyte leads to a vesicular or bullous eruption. The clinical presentation seen in Fig. 6-4 must be differentiated from acute contact dermatitis, bullous impetigo, or an autoimmune blistering disease such as linear IgA dermatosis.
