ABSTRACTRingworm of the head, is an entity in the pediatric age, even at the 97% prevalent in schools and preschools. In the superficial mycoses ranked fourth in the vats. It is caused by dermatophytes; the clinical appearance is characteristic and suggests etiological agent; only in some cases requires mycological confirmation. The treatment of choice is griseofulvin. We report a case with suggestive clinical appearance of tinea Trichophyticus, which was isolated from Microsporum canis.
