This image depicts a right superior-oblique view of a boy’s scalp, which displayed signs of a condition known as tinea capitis, a form of ringworm, which included a crusty textured lesion. This infection had been caused by the dermatophytic fungal organism, Trichophyton mentagrophytes. In this case the dermatophytosis had progressed to a condition known as a kerion reaction, whereupon, a secondary bacterial infection accompanied the fungal infestation.
