Title : The diagnosis and treatment of several tinea incognito cases


Short Description of what will be discussed during the presentation (about 250 - 500 words)?Losing the typical features of tinea corporis and tinea cruris, tinea incognito is often misdiagnosed as other diseases due to its atypical clinical manifestations. Having been misdiagnosed, improper treatments make the skin lesion more serious and persistent. At present, the reports about tinea incognito were mainly some case reports at home and abroad. Here we will show several real cases and diagnosis and treatment process of tinea incognito and make an overall review including inducing factors, clinical features, the distribution of the pathogenic dermatophyte species, and diagnosis about tinea incognito.

Audience Take Away Notes:

  • Increasing dermatologists' awareness of this disease.
  • Avoiding misdiagnosis and mistreatment of this disease.
  • Providing a practical solution to a problem.


As a clinician at Institute of Dermatology, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, my major is fungal infection disease and have participated several anti-fungal drug clinical trials, fungal ecology, epidemiology surveys. In recent years, we have studied the pathogenicity of Candida albicans, especially in the study of the effect of mitochondrial function on the cell wall mechanism of Candida albicans and its influence on the immune function of the host in collaboration with Professor Richard Calderone and Professor Li Dongmei of the Department of Microbiology and immunology, Georgetown University. We will continue to do in-depth research in this field in the future.
