Abstract

• To our knowledge, this communication reports the first case of Trichophyton simii infection in the United States not traceable to India. The patient was a 40-year-old Nigerian male student who had not been out of the United States for more than three years. He had never been in India or had contact with animals or poultry. A brief review of the literature is included.
