Tinea corporis gladiatorum (TCG) is a variety of tinea corporis transmitted by repeated and close skin contacts among athletes, in particular wrestlers and judokas. Trichophyton tonsurans is the most frequently isolated dermatophyte. Cases of TCG were reported in USA, Iran, Japan, Turkey and France, where wrestling or judo are popular. No cases of TCG were reported in Italy. The typical clinical presentation of tinea corporis is not always present in TCG: a bacterial folliculitis-like appearance is not rare. Fluconazole is the therapy of choice.


KEY WORDS: Tinea; Corporis; Gladiatorum
