An 11-year-old boy presented with inflamed tinea pedis followed by a generalized id type skin eruption, with disappearance of the rash after treatment of the mycotic foot lesions.

The pathogenesis of this process is not precisely known. Fungal infection was not detected from the generalized skin lesions. Various clinical forms of dermatophytid reaction are discussed.
