Tinea kerion (_kerion_) is a markedly inflammatory type of ringworm of the scalp involving the deeper tissues, appearing as a more or less bald, rounded, inflammatory, [oe] dematous, boggy, honeycombed tumor, discharging from the follicular openings a mucoid secretion.
It consists of a flat carbuncular or kerion-like inflammation, somewhat elevated, and usually a dime to silver dollar in area.
In that form known as tinea kerion mild applications are demanded at first; later the same treatment as in the ordinary type.
