A PCR detecting dermatophytes within a short turnaround time would significantly enhance the management of patients with suspected dermatophytosis. This study aimed at comparing the results of a real-time PCR assay with those of the conventional diagnostic (direct microscopy and culture) performed by a dermatologist working in a medical mycology laboratory for the detection of dermatophytes in nail and skin samples. A total of 112 specimens (54 nail and 58 skin) were collected from 52 patients… CONTINUE READING
