Abstract

Pityriasis versicolor (PV) is a superficial mycosis, theoretically unusual in children. Epidemiologic and clinical data for children with PV over 11 years was collected. Some explanations are given for the conditions that favored this mycotic infection in children. This study confirms that the face is a usual site of PV in children, in contrast to its rarity as a site in adults. Clinical features are variable and similar to adults. Both sexes are equally affected. The family history is often positive for PV.
