Summary. 

We report the case of a 36-year-old man who presented large erythematous plaques involving the trunk, face and extremities, since one month. Some of these lesions had a psoriasis-like aspect, with abundant superficial scaling. Direct microscopic examination of scales removed from the plaques revealed numerous hyphae. Cultural examination lead to the identification of Trichophyton rubrum species. Our case of tinea corporis presented some peculiarities related both to the extension of the lesions and their clinical aspects. Zusammenfassung.
