This 1963 image depicted the back of a small child in Moprik, Papua New Guinea, who was exhibiting early cutaneous manifestations of tinea imbricata. A mycotic infection, tinea imbricata, also known as Tokelau, involves the superficial layers of skin, and is caused by the fungal organism, Trichophyton concentricum, which had been cultured from samples taken from this lesion.
