Abstract

Comunica-se o quarto relato de infecção humana por Microsporum nanum (M. nanun) no Brasil. Trata-se de criança de 9 meses de idade, apresentando há um mês lesões cutâneas dorsais compatíveis com tinea corporis. As lesões foram frustas, regredindo espontaneamente após um mês. A investigação epidemiológica na área de origem do caso índice identificou suínos infectados por Microsporum nanum, sugerindo ser esta a fonte de infecção.<br>The authors present the fourth Brazilian case of human Microsporum nanum (M. nanum) infection. A child of nine months old presents cutaneous dorsal lesions compatible with tinea corporis, which appeared one month before. The culture revealed M. nanum. The lesions resolved spontaneously after a month. Epidemiologic investigation in the patient's place of origin identified swine infected by M. nanum, indicating the probable source of the infection
