Abstract

Tinea nigra, a relatively uncommon mycosis caused by Phaeoannelomyces werneckii, is typically seen as an asymptomatic brown or black macule on the hands and feet. We present two cases of tinea nigra in children in São Paulo, Brazil, and alert readers to the potential for confusion with melanocytic lesions.
