Abstract

Two atopic siblings presented with unilateral chronic scaly plantar lesions. Histology revealed the presence of fungi with unusual morphological aspects. Scopulariopsis brevicaulis and Phoma spp., respectively, grew on repeated cultures. Dermatophytes were absent. Such opportunistic fungal infections of the stratum corneum are extremely rare.
