Kerion celsi is a highly inflammatory, supprative fungal infection of the scalp caused mainly by zoophilic dermatophytes transmitted from animals to man. We report a case of kerion celsi caused by Trichophyton (T.) mentagrophytes in 9 year-old male, who showed 10 x 9 cm and 2 x 1 cm sized, markedly inflammatory, boggy masses on the scalp and erythematous scaly patch on the philtrum. Cultures from a scalp lesion of the patient on Sabouraud glucose agar showed T. mentagrophytes. Treatment was done systemically with steroid and antifungal agents.
