Dermatophytes may be divided into several groups on the basis of sources of infection, host preference, clinical spectrum and geographic distribution. Other epidemiological factors are more directly host-related. This paper emphasizes the role of indirect transmission of infective propagules and the degree of exposure to large inocula in the human and animal environment, as detected by direct sampling methods.
