Secondary syphilis Tineacorporis (ringworm) For most people with pityriasis rosea, no treatment is required. The rash may worsen before it resolves, with new crops of lesions continuing to appear for up to 6 weeks. It will usually settle without treatment within 2–3 months, but may take up to 5 months to disappear. After the rash has disappeared, there may be some hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation of the affected skin for several months, but there should be no scarring. For people with itch (...) the CKS topic on for more information. Tineacorporis This is characterized by well-demarcated, scaly, annular, erythematous papules or plaques, which gradually enlarge over time. The borders may be raised or scaly with central clearance. See the CKS topic on for more information. Other rashes with annular lesions, including: Erythema annulare centrifugum — expanding lesions with central clearing and scaling at the trailing edge, most commonly affecting the trunk, buttocks, and legs. Erythema migrans
Skin rash in a 2-week-old infant. We presented a case of a male infant with annular patchy rash on his torso since 2 weeks of age. This was initially diagnosed as tineacorporis but did not respond to oral antifungal treatment. Because of the appearance of the rash and a history of a certain disease in a maternal aunt, we suspected the most probable cause of the rash and the diagnosis was confirmed by laboratory testing. Furthermore, laboratory screening of the mother, who was asymptomatic
Efficacy and tolerability of topical sertaconazole versus topical terbinafine in localized dermatophytosis: A randomized, observer-blind, parallel group study. Epidermal dermatophyte infections most commonly manifest as tineacorporis or tinea cruris. Topical azole antifungals are commonly used in their treatment but literature suggests that most require twice-daily application and provide lower cure rates than the allylamine antifungal terbinafine. We conducted a head-to-head comparison (...) topical sertaconazole is as effective as terbinafine in localized tinea infections.
Dermatophyte infection caused by Nannizzia gypsea: A rare case report from Madagascar We report a rare case of dermatophyte infection of the glabrous skin (Tineacorporis) caused by Nannizzia gypsea (formerly Microsporum gypseum). A 22-year-old Malagasy female who reported close contact reportedly with cats, presented a single round lesion with a peripheral, active, squamous and pruriginous inflammatory bead. Morphologic species identification was confirmed by sequencing the internal

Furthermore, the antibacterial and antifungal effects of sulfur-containing water in this source can be helpful in the treatment of leg ulcers, tinea versicolor, tineacorporis, and tinea capitis.
) were used for direct microscopy and culture. All the culture-positive samples were then subjected to amplification of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) of the nuclear rDNA followed by a restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) assay to verify the causative agents.The infection was confirmed in 90 (44.3%) males and 113 (55.7%) females. The most common type of dermatophytoses was tinea cruris (42.9%), followed by tinea pedis (20.2%), tineacorporis (11.3%), tinea unguium (7.4%), tinea (...) faciei (6.9%), tinea manuum (6.4%), and tinea capitis (4.9%). ITS-RFLP based of the identification of isolates, showed that the infections were significantly associated with anthropophilic species, of Trichophyton rubrum (41.9%), Epidermophyton floccosum (19.7%), T. tonsurans (5.4%), and T.violaceum (2%). Other causative agents were T. interdigitale (22.6%), Microsporum canis (4.9%), T. verrucosum (2.5%), and M. gypseum (1%).The higher prevalence of T. rubrum, as the agent of dermatophytoses, than
also got tineacorporis on her trunk since she was 10 years old. Chrysosporium keratinophilum was isolated from the tissue on the neck and scales on the trunk, respectively. The patient showed satisfactory response to itraconazole therapy, although she discontinued the follow-up.
Infection by Microsporum canis in Paediatric Patients: A Veterinary Perspective Microsporum canis is a dermatophyte fungus of which cats and dogs are recognized as the natural hosts. M. canis is also easily transmitted to humans, causing lesions to the glabrous skin (tineacorporis) and to the head (tinea capitis). The present study describes some cases of infection with M. canis in children from a veterinary perspective, highlighting some important features of this clinical entity (e.g
clinically suspected tinea. The patients were referred to our laboratory for direct examination by 30 %KOH. Some of the specimens were cultured on Sabouraud Dextrose Agar for fungal identification.Out of the 4080 cases, 1138 cases were positive in direct examination(%27.89) , including Tinea pedis (%46.98), followed by tinea capitis(%39.79) , tineacorporis (%25.38), toenail onychomycosi (%20.33), tinea manuum (%16.06), and fingernail onychomycosis .(%15.22) Tinea pedis and toenail onychomycosis were

Two independent reviewers will perform eligibility assessment and data extraction using standardised electronic forms. Risk of bias assessment will be undertaken by two independent reviewers according to the Cochrane Risk of Bias tool. Data will be tabulated and narratively synthesised. We expect there will be insufficient data to conduct meta-analysis. The final body
in the winter. The body site most commonly affected was the face. Tineacorporis was the most common subtype of dermatophytosis caused by T. tonsurans. Herein, we demonstrate that the prevalence of infection with T. tonsurans remain constant throughout the study period in Korea.
. This was a prospective case-control laboratory based study conducted over a period of six months from January to June 2014 at Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital, Nepal. A total of 200 specimens were collected from the patients suspected of superficial mycoses. The specimens were macroscopically as well as microscopically examined. The growth was observed up to 4 weeks. Results. Out of total 200 specimens from the patients suspected of superficial mycoses, tineacorporis 50 (25%) was most common clinical types

It also inhibited the growth of biofilm generated by Trichophyton mentagrophytes and Candida parapsilosis and reduced the preformed biofilms. Hydroxychavicol was highly effective in the treatment, and mycological eradication of an experimentally induced topical infection model of dermatophytosis (tineacorporis) and cutaneous candidiasis in guinea pigs, respectively. The mode of action of hydroxychavicol appears to originate
produced favorable clinical and mycological results in clinical trials for tineacorporis and tinea cruris. Across trials, adverse events consisted mainly of localized reactions following application. The development of a new antifungal agent is timely due to mounting resistance among existing treatments. Because luliconazole requires a short duration of treatment, it may assist in reducing disease recurrence as a result of patient nonadherence. (...) A critical appraisal of once-daily topical luliconazole for the treatment of superficial fungal infections Luliconazole is a novel imidazole derivative, which has demonstrated in vitro efficacy against dermatophytes and Candida. The results from Phase III trials show that luliconazole 1% cream applied once daily for 2 weeks successfully resolved the clinical signs and symptoms as well as eradicated the pathologic fungi, which cause tinea pedis. A 1-week treatment with luliconazole 1% cream also
corporis), nail (tinea unguium), and hand (tinea manuum). The identification of evolutionary relationship between these three genera of dermatophyte is epidemiologically important to understand their pathogenicity. Mitochondrial DNA evolves more rapidly than a nuclear DNA due to higher rate of mutation but is very less affected by genetic recombination, making it an important tool for phylogenetic studies. Thus, here we present a novel scheme to identify the conserved coil functional residues (...) Computational analysis of conserved coil functional residues in the mitochondrial genomic sequences of dermatophytes Dermatophyte is a group of closely related fungi that have the capacity to invade keratinized tissue of humans and other animals. The infection known as dermatophytosis, caused by members of the genera Microsporum, Trichophyton, and Epidermophyton includes infection to the groin (tinea cruris), beard (tinea barbae), scalp (tinea capitis), feet (tinea pedis), glabrous skin (tinea
weeks.The two cases had advanced immunosuppression and developed de-novo exaggerated manifestation of inflammatory lesions compatible with tineacorporis and tinea facies in temporal association with antiretroviral treatment initiation and good immunological response. This is compatible with unmasking tinea-IRIS, and reminds African clinicians about the importance of considering this entity in the differential diagnosis of patients with skin lesions developing after antiretroviral treatment initiation. (...) Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome associated with dermatophytoses in two HIV-1 positive patients in rural Tanzania: a case report. Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome associated with dermatophytoses (tinea-IRIS) may cause considerable morbidity. Yet, it has been scarcely reported and is rarely considered in the differential diagnosis of HIV associated cutaneous lesions in Africa. If identified, it responds well to antifungals combined with steroids. We present two cases
