Dermatophytes are fungal pathogens that commonly cause superficial infections. In rare cases, a dermatophyte infection may be invasive, such as in Majocchi's granuloma, dermal and subcutaneous invasion, and disseminated or systemic infections. The clinical manifestations include subcutaneous nodules, small erythematous vesicles, cysts, discharging sinuses, or blastomycosis-like pyoderma.1 Here, we report a rare case of disseminated dermatophytosis.
