BACKGROUND Non-dermatophytic onychomycoses represent 1.45-17.6% of all fungal nail infections. Epidemiological studies have shown that Aspergillus spp. are emerging fungal agents of toenail onychomycosis. Indeed, after Scopulariopsis spp. the genus Aspergillus is the second most common agent of non-dermatophytic onychomycosis. The diagnosis and treatment of toenail onychomycosis caused by non-dermatophyte moulds are not always straightforward. OBJECTIVES The aims of this study were to… CONTINUE READING
