The toes of both feet of this patient displayed symptoms of the dermatophytic infection known as ringworm, which had been caused by the fungal organism, Trichophyton rubrum. This infection, which involved the toenails, is known as onychomycosis, or tinea unguium, and causes discoloration, thickening and crumbling of the toenails. In this particular case, the skin of the toes, and what appeared to be the soles of the feet, were also affected, which is known as tinea pedis.
