文献摘要

Sometimes first impressions are not the longest lasting. We highlight the case of a 77-year-old female who presented with a 1.8 cm scaly patch on her right lower leg. After a potassium hydroxide preparation was negative for fungal elements, a short course of clobetasol (corticosteroid) therapy was used topically with only temporary improvement. At follow-up, she noted persistent pruritus associated with an illdefined scaly patch. The clinical differential diagnosis was concerning for squamous cell carcinoma in situ vs. tinea corporis vs. allergic dermatitis.
