El objeto fue la obtencion de antigenos de dermatofitos: Tricophyton rubram, Trichophyton mentagrophytes y su mezcla asi como la evaluacion de su actividad biologica estudiando y relacionando en un grupo definido de pacientes, la reactividad cutanea provocada con sus condiciones clinicas. Se estudiaron 75 individuos, de estos 54 presentaron patologia micotica superficial y 21 pertenecieron al grupo control. En el grupo total los resultados de las pruebas intradermicas fue del 87% de positividad… 


The clinical significance of cutaneous reactions to trichophytin in dermatophytosis.

Chronic dermatophytosis was characterized by immediate reactions to purified trichophytin and few delayed reactions, and patients not chronically infected were characterized by delayed reactions and few immediate reactions.
Immediate and delayed hypersensitivity in chronic dermatophytosis.
Patients with chronic dermatophytosis appear to have a relatively specific defect in DH to trichophytin, but their cell-mediated responses to other antigens may also be somewhat decreased.
Immunological reactivity in dermatophytosis
Patients with Trichophyton mentagrophytes and T. rubrum infections were compared in terms of cutaneous responses and in vitro lymphocyte reactivity to trichophytin and other antigens; positive lymphocyte responses correlated with the presence of delayed but not immediate cutaneous reactions.
A simple stain for rapid office diagnosis of fungus infections of the skin.
Direct microscopy using potassium hydroxide as a clearing agent is a diagnostic procedure commonly used for the detection of fungal hyphae in suspected dermatophytoses, tinea versicolor, and candidiasis, but it lacks sensitivity and often the physician must rely on culture results.
Studies on tricophytin sensitivity.
The trichophytin test has been assumed to be analogous to the tuberculin test. However, whereas the tuberculin test is regarded as indicating present or past infection, there is less direct evidence
A New Biological Stain for General Purposes
IT was accidentally discovered while dissecting small Crustacea under spirit on a background of black velvet, that a dye dissolved very slightly in spirit and stained the chitin a distinct green.
