• A 3½-year-old girl had a three-year history of chronic annular erythema that more closely mimicked erythema gyratum repens of adults than other annular erythemas of infancy. Histopathologic study revealed bowenoid characteristics in the epidermis. No fungi were ever demonstrated in this patient's skin lesions, but they consistently responded to treatment with ketoconazole and flared immediately after cessation of treatment with that drug.
