Abstract: Two patients were admitted to the hospital for 2-month history of pruritic eruptions on the forehead and 2-week history of pruritie eruptions on the leg, respectively. Both patients had a history of pet contact. Topical application of glucocorticoids did not work well. Dermatological examination revealed a patch measuring 5 cm ×6 cm on the forehead of one patient and a patch measuring 2 cm × 3 cm on the leg of the other patient. Both patches were surrounded by red papules and scaling. Microscopic examination of skin scales revealed hyphae and chain-like spores, and culture of skin scales grew Microsporum gyeum. Both the isolates of Microsporum gyeum were sensitive to ketoconazole, miconazole, bifonazole, terbinafine, and voriconazole. Both patients were healed after treatment with oral terbinafine and topical ciclopirox olamine.
