Abstract

SummaryUndetected tinea pedis in a patient with diabetes can lead to serious bacterial infections with potentially serious consequences, such as foot amputations. Here we report on a 60-year-old patient with diabetes presenting with pain, severe pruritus, and malodour in the foot's interdigital area, and subsequently, diagnosed with inflammatory tinea pedis with bacterial superinfection. The patient was successfully treated with Travocort cream containing isoconazole nitrate 1% and diflucortolone valerate 0.1%; marked improvement occurred within 5 days.
