Bilateral breast enlargment due to Trichophyton rubrum
Gynecomastia is the most common cause of breast enlargement in mates. Trichophyton rubrum is a common dermatophyte, is responsible for a variety of infections, and may rarely manifest as a dermatophytic pseudomycetorna. We report the case of a 52-year-old man who presented with progressive bilateral breast enlargement. This is the first reported case of bilateral breast pseudomycetorna due to T rubrum. Long-term antifungal therapy with itraconazole was successful. (c) 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
