Tinea incognito was first described 50 years ago. It is a dermatophytic infection with a clinical presentation modified by previous treatment with topical or systemic corticosteroids, as well as by the topical application of immunomodulators such as pimecrolimus and tacrolimus. Tinea incognito usually resembles neurodermatitis, atopic dermatitis, rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis, lupus erythematosus, or contact dermatitis, and the diagnosis is frequently missed or delayed.
