This image depicts a right superior-oblique view of a child’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 the case of this patient, the lesions had become highly inflamed, referred to as a kerion. Note the serosanguinous drainage emanating from the large circular lesion.
