Two Cases of Dermatophytic Granuloma Successfully Treated with Terbinafine

Short Communication


Dermatophytic granuloma, also called Majocchi’s granuloma (MG), is an uncommon infection of the dermis and subcutaneous tissues that can occur in both healthy and immunosuppressed hosts. We present two cases of MG with different clinical features. Both patients had satisfactory relief after treatment with terbinafine.
