    The patient in the image brought home an abandoned kitten as a pet ( and still keeps it ), one month before presenting.

    What is the most likely cause of the lesion ?

    Ans: Tinea Corporis

    I think it was the context...that must have discouraged some of you from going for the answer. Tinea corporis is very commonly acquired as a zoonosis esp. household pets to children.

    Take home point: Always include history of exposure to pets, when faced with a case of Tinea corporis.
