A 22-year-old female veterinary student developed a severe inflammatory fungal infection of the pubic area 2 months after practical training in obstetrics at a cattle farm. Fungal culture revealed a slowly growing white dermatophyte, first differentiated as Trichophyton mentagrophytes. Because of the unusual location, molecular species differentiation was performed identifying Trichophyton verrucosum. Although the patient was treated with systemic antifungals, the infection resulted in scarring alopecia.
