Tinea is the superficial fungal infections caused by the dermatophytes, usually composed of 3 genera (Trichophyton, Microsporum, and Epidermophyton). Tinea incognito is a fungal skin infection with atypical clinical features due to prolonged systemic or topical steroids, or other topical immunosuppressive agents, like calcineurin inhibitors. The atypical clinical presentation of this fungal infection makes the diagnosis tricky even for the expert dermatologists, therefore, easily leads for misdiagnosis and wrong treatment.
