Zusammenfassung. Ein Kollektiv von 40 Kohlengrubenarbeitern, davon 35 mit kulturell gesicherten Fußmykosen und fünf mit Nagelinfektionen, bedingt durch Hendersonula toruloidea, Scytalidium hyalinum und Dermatophyten, wurde entweder mit Isoconazolnitrat (TravogenrG) oder Clotrimazol (Canestenr̀) vier Wochen lang behandelt. Die klinischen Heilungsraten für die Symptome Juckreiz, Entzündung, Schuppung und Mazeration waren in der Isoconazol‐Gruppe bei den Fußinfektionen 89%, 88%, 83% und 83%. In…

Isoconazole nitrate in the treatment of tropical dermatomycoses

Isoconazole nitrate: a unique broad‐spectrum antimicrobial azole effective in the treatment of dermatomycoses, both as monotherapy and in combination with corticosteroids

TLDR
Results indicate that clinical isolates of N. dimidiatum in Malaysia were sensitive towards miconazole, clotrimazoles, voriconazoles and amphotericin B, in vitro.
Two cases of tinea pedis caused by Scytalidium hyalinum
TLDR
These cases are reported because infections caused by Scytalidium hyalinum are rare in Europe and their clinical and mycological diagnosis, as well as therapy, may be problematic.
Nondermatophytic filamentous keratinophilic fungi and their role in human infection.
TLDR
Criteria considered important for evaluating the role of nondermatophytic filamentous fungi in skin infections are the demonstration of mycelial elements in direct microscopy of skin scrapings or biopsy compatible with those in culture, repeated positive cultures from clinical material, and the exclusion of infection due to a dermatophyte or a fungus other than the one in question.
Topical treatments for fungal infections of the skin and nails of the foot.
TLDR
Allylamines cure slightly more infections than azoles but are much more expensive, so the most cost-effective strategy is first to treat with azoles or undecenoic acid and to use allylamines only if that fails.
