Taenia Corporis

2month old baby came to me with a circular lesion near rt.elbow jt.since 15 days, no fever,, my dx was Taenia corporis,my ??is can we start oral flucanazole if it doesn’t respond to local Antifungal cream.


If the lesion is responding with topical antifungal continue the treatment for minimum 1mth. If there is no improvement you can go for Fluconazole 3-5mg / kg OD for 2weeks.

Thanks sir,I was also thinking in the same line as suggested by u,only I wanted valuable opinion. Thanks again

Lulicanazole tropical give flucannazole od 10 days

Yes 6 mg per kg2
