Abstract With modern-day air travel eliminating distance and time barriers, it becomes increasingly important for those of us in the temperate zones to become aware of and acquainted with the commoner tropical diseases. The following case report of a patient with tinea nigra palmaris illustrates this fact and points out a number of unusual clinical features associated with this disorder. Report of a Case A young white woman, age 20, daughter of a United States naval captain, arrived in Panama in June, 1952. About December of that year she became aware of a black spot on her left palm suggesting a pencil mark. This discoloration remained persistent throughout her stay in Panama. In December, 1953, the patient returned to Newport, R. I. During the hot humid summer of 1954 she once again noted that the pencil spot was growing.
