Dermatophytosis: from bench to bedside

  title={Dermatophytosis: from bench to bedside},
  author={Natthanej Luplertlop and Supattra Suwanmanee},
Dermatophytosis (Tinea infections or Ringworm), considered as a superficial mycosis, is one of the most common cause of cutaneous fungal infections particularly in tropical countries. This disease mainly affects the skin, hair and nails. The classification of dermatophytosis is based on their normal habitats (as geophilics, zoophilics and anthropophilics) and site of infection, for instance scalp infection (tinea capitis), the bearded area (tinea barbae), the trunk (tinea corporis), the groin… 
Antifungal Activities of Ethanolic Extract from the Rhizomes of Mango Ginger (Curcuma amada Roxb.) - ฤทธิต้านเชือราของสารสกัดเอทานอล จากเหง้าขมินขาวป่า
Mango ginger rhizome extract would be a promising agent to develop as an antifungal drug in various dosage forms and the effect of labda-8(17),12-diene-15,16-dial at MIC against C. albicans in time-kill curve study revealed that labda -8- diene- 15, 16-dial showed fungicidal activity.
Formulation Development of Canine Antifungal Shampoo Containing Senna tora (L.) Roxb. Seed Extract
The results indicated that sodium lauryl ether sulfate (20%) was an appropriate detergent with cocamidopropyl betain (4-6%) as a foam booster and this shampoo showed relatively potent antifungal activity against M. canis, including effective cleaning action.

Dermatophyte infections.
Oral therapy is preferred for tinea capitis, tinea barbae, and onychomycosis and "pulse" oral therapy with the newer imidazoles (itraconazole or fluconazole) or allylamines (terbinafine) is considerably less expensive than continuous treatment but has a somewhat lower mycologic cure rate.
Common tinea infections in children.
Although oral griseofulvin has been the standard treatment for tinea capitis, newer oral antifungal agents such as terbinafine, itraconazole, and fluconazole are effective, safe, and have shorter treatment courses.
Favus of the Scalp: An Overview and Update
Favus is typically a childhood disease, yet adult cases are not uncommon, and Interestingly, favus is less contagious than other dermatophytoses, although intrafamilial infections are reported and have been widely discussed in the literature.
Epidemiological trends in skin mycoses worldwide
Current epidemiological trends for fungal infections of the skin and nails are summarized and dermatomycosis of glabrous skin on different continents is focused on.
Onychomycosis: modern diagnostic and treatment approaches
This review includes the conventional as well as the newest and most reliable and modern methods used for the identification of the pathogens causing onychomycosis.
Infection stages of the dermatophyte pathogen Trichophyton: microscopic characterization and proteolytic enzymes.
The morphology of the fungal elements, such as arthroconidia and hyphae, during the adhesion and invasion stages of the dermatophyte are followed to show their mechanical and biochemical capabilities to invade the skin tissue effectively.
Pathogenesis of dermatophytosis and tinea versicolor.
The diagnosis and management of tinea
This review aims to familiarise the reader with the various clinical presentations of tinea, to outline the steps that should be taken for accurate diagnosis, and to evaluate the most appropriate treatment regimens.
Conventional Methods for the Diagnosis of Dermatophytosis
Progress is still needed for the development of biochemical or immunological tests allowing an accurate identification at the species level, pending for the availability of molecular biology-based kits.
Rapid detection of dermatophytes from skin and hair
Results indicate that nested PCR may be considered as gold standard for the diagnosis of dermatophytosis and can aid the clinician in initiating prompt and appropriate antifungal therapy.
