Description:This image shows the head of a horse from an anterior view, revealing the presence of skin lesions distributed in an irregular pattern, and which had been determined to be caused by the dermatophytic fungal organism, Trichophyton verrucosum. Note the denuded character of the lesions due to the fungal infestation of the hairs in these regions.
T. verrucosum presents itself as a zoophilic, i.e., an affinity for animals, infection affecting horses and cattle, though can infect humans through by way of direct contact with an infected equine or bovine animal. When the organism affects the hair shaft, the infection presents itself as ectothrix invasion of the shaft.
