Nodular granulomatous perifolliculitis is a well-recognized infection of the dermal and subcutaneous tissue caused by dermatophytes, which normally do not invade beyond the epidermis. We report here one such case that occurred in an immunosuppressed individual. The patient was a 35-year-old farmer who presented with small pruritic eruption that had initially appeared on the lower leg and then had gradually spread to hair-bearing areas of the body, finally producing nodular and pustular inflammatory lesions with exacerbations and remissions. Fungal examination by direct potassium hydroxide mount and culture revealed Trichophyton rubrum. Granulomatous changes were seen on histopathological examination. The patient completely responded to systemic antifungal therapy.
