The young Yugoslavian child depicted here, from a posterior perspective, exhibited symptoms of a scalp disorder known as tinea favosa, a form of tinea capitis, as can be seen by the numerous crusts, or scutulae, along with accompanying hair loss, or alopecia. This cutaneous illness was caused by the dermatophytic fungal organism, Trichophyton schoenleinii. See PHIL 16226, for an anterior view of this patient's scalp condition.
