Mycosis of the scalp is a common fungal disease. The optimal diagnosis is ensured by the combination of classical diagnostic tests with modern methods of molecular biology. The clinical picture of fungal infections of the scalp can be determined by the nature of the pathogen that caused ringworm (anthropophilic or zoophilic), the duration of the disease, and preceding therapy. The publication presents a case of a rare chronic infiltrative-suppurative microsporia of the scalp. The literature review reflects data on the etiology, epidemiology, and clinical picture of mycosis of the scalp.
