<<Case reports>>: Tinea imbricata is an uncommon dermatophytosis caused by the anthropophilic dermatophyte Trichophyton concentricum in endemic regions. In the present study, a 10- year-old girl was examined for tinea imbricata. Microscopic examination revealed the presence of hyaline, septate, branching hyphae and its cultures on Sabouraud dextrose agar yielded T. concentricum. The patient responded to treatment with oral terbinafine 250mg/day topical clotrimazole (1% ointment), topical miconazole (2% cream) two times daily and potassium permanganate for daily washing for four weeks. In the present study, we reported the first case of tinea imbricate from Iran.
