An unusual case report: Tinea capitis, verrucae vulgares and other infections in a girl with T and B cell disturbances

Abstract

Hereby described is a case of a young girl suffering from widespread dermatophytosis caused byTrichophyton violaceum which proved intractable to accepted methods of therapy throughout a number of years. The girl was also found to have a history or recurrent respiratory tract infection and pyoderma in addition to verrucae vulgares, and Giardia lamblia in the gastrointestinal tract. Investigation revealed a marked immunological deficit seen in both the cellular and humoral system. It is suggested that in similar cases resistant to therapy it may be helpful to carry out a comprehensive investigation of the immunological system.
