Otomycosis, which is otitis externa caused by fungi, is common throughout the world especially in tropical and subtropical countries. However, the epidemiologic data about the etiologic agents of otomycosis in Turkey is limited. The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the agents of otomycosis in patients living at Manisa region (located at western Anatolia of Turkey). A total of 2279 cases [1465 male, 813 female; age range 1-87 (mean: 41.7) years] who were clinically prediagnosed as… 

Otomycosis in Adolescent Patients Referred to the Therapeutic Centers in Babol City, Iran

Otomycosis agents most commonly belonged to the genus of Aspergillus followed by Candida, which should be seriously considered by physicians for appropriate treatment.

Lamisil, a potent alternative antifungal drug for otomycosis

This is a new approach for the possible use of Lamisil for the treatment of otomycosis and there are no significant differences on the effects of clotrimazole, miconazole and, terbinafine on saprophytic (environmental) and pathogenic isolates of A. niger, A. flavus, and A. terreus.

Otomycosis among Patients Presenting with Ear Discharges at a Tertiary Hospital in South Western Uganda

Otomycosis can be common and is an important disease of the external ear, especially in at-risk individuals in southwestern Uganda, and there is a need for routine checks followed by robust diagnostic approaches as a means for evidence-based patient management.

Molecular Identification and Antifungal Susceptibility of Yeasts and Molds Isolated from Patients with Otomycosis

The importance of the early physical examination, precise molecular identification, and the antifungal susceptibility evaluation is highlighted, as well as the existence of the cases with perforated tympanic membrane and emerging species causing fungal otitis in the current report.
