A 26-year-old female, resident of a rural area of district Gurgaon (Haryana), had asymptomatic sulphur - yellow, cup-shaped lesions, typical of favus, on her scalp for the last 5 years. Some of the nails were also affected. KOH examination of scrapings from the scalp lesions and the nails were positive for fungus. Culture from both these sites showed T. Schoenleinii. This is a case of favus occurring in a non-enderaic area.
