Ringworm 4 *
Photograph of an individual with “ringworm”, or tinea capitis of the scalp caused by Microsporum gypseum. Although it is rare, M. gypseum, a natural soil habitant, can cause tinea on humans and animals. This fungus usually produces a single inflammatory skin lesion which has scaly patches and hair loss, or broken hair shafts.
