Favus

Background

Favus, also termed tinea favosa, is a chronic inflammatory dermatophytic infection usually caused by Trichophyton schoenleinii.
Rarely, favus is caused by Trichophyton violaceum, Trichophyton mentagrophytes var quinckeanum, or Microsporum gypseum. Favus typically affects scalp hair but also may infect glabrous skin and nails. The causative agent of mouse favus is T mentagrophytes var quinckeanum, also termed Trichophyton quinckeanum, which can cause favus in humans, although rarely.
