Begoña Escutia, et. al

We report the case of a four year-old girl from Equatorial Guinea who had been living in Spain for the last month. She presented several alopecic patches on the scalp. The direct study of the hair with 40% KOH showed an ectothrix infection and the mycological study revealed the etiologic agent was Microsporum audouinii. We present this case because of its rarity in our country and we point out the increasing interest of the imported tineas due to immigration from African countries.
