This case shows the importance of clinical examination and giving treatment only after proper diagnosis. The patient complained of itching since 1 year with lesions that keep recurring after stopping treatment. He was earlier treated for eczema. The patient first showed the legs and I was about to write the medication. But when I again saw the lesion something was not right, so I told him to remove his shirt and found this presentation. I was shocked at the presentation and was finally able to give a definite diagnosis and treatment. I want my friends and Curofians to have a look and give your opinions.



Tinea corporis

Though the leg lesion looks like psoriasis it's a case of extensive tinea corporis. Treatment I'd like to give terbinafine 500 mg daily for two weeks & evaluate. Prior to that I'd love to do a koh smear.

Tinea with secondary eczematization/lichenification... Right sir If see only leg it's spot to psoriasis .

Horrible sir... what a case... Really we must start a campaign on steroids abuse on Curofy and in our country... We just want an early relief as much early as possible and we end up in a mess like this... Extensive Tinea corporis with lichenification...

Very sad, that patient suffered for such a long time, after 3 weeks he cried and thanked me for helping him, he was mentally depressed even driven to suicide. Luckily His friend brought him.
