We report the first case of tinea corporis bullosa due to Trichophyton schoenleinii in a 41-year-old Romanian woman, without any involvement of the scalp and hair. The species identification was performed using macroscopic and microscopic features of the dermatophyte and its physiological abilities. Epidemiological aspects of the case are also discussed. The general treatment with terbinafine and topical applications of ciclopiroxolamine cream have led to complete healing, with the lesions disappearing in 2 weeks.
