Pustular Tinea Pedis

Case Reports

Pustular Tinea Pedis

J V Hirschmann et al. J Am Acad Dermatol.


Pustules are uncommon in tinea pedis and may suggest a bacterial infection. We describe a patient with large pustules on his feet that contained hyphae on Gram's stain of the pus and on a potassium hydroxide preparation of the pustule roof. Cultures were negative for bacteria, but grew Trichophyton rubrum.
