abstract

  • Atrophying cutaneous lesions comprise part of the clinical spectrum of tinea versicolor for which we propose the term 'atrophying tinea versicolor'. The pathogenetic basis is unclear but could be the sequela of delayed type hypersensitivity and the release by T-helper lymphocytes of leukotrienes which perturb collagen metabolism and/or keratinocyte growth. Lesions may be mistaken clinically for MF or other atrophying dermatoses.
