This section has been translated automatically.

Dermatophyte infection of the feet which, starting from a plantar fungal disease, spreads to the edges of the feet in the form of a moccasin(moccasin mycosis). Thus, this pictorial description only defines the particular mode of spread of the infection in a special topography.

Clinical features
This section has been translated automatically.

Usually initially little-noticed, aphlegmatic tinea of the sole(s) of the foot with fine- to medium-lamellar scaling, little to no itching. If treatment is insufficient or absent, the infection spreads to the lateral edges of the foot and to the back of the foot, now in the form of reddened, strongly itchy and borderline plaques with 0.1-0.2 cm large (follicular) papules and vesicles. The fully developed clinical picture then covers the contact area of moccasins. The visit to a specialist often takes place only after the itching has occurred.
