Classical identification of dermatophytes relies on morphological and physiological characteristics. The search for these characteristics often makes their identification long and laborious. In addition, phenotypic features can frequently vary from strain to strain or the organism can become devoid of distinguishing features. In the last few years, genotypic approaches to identification have proven to be useful in solving taxonomic problems regarding dermatophytes. In fact, genotypic… CONTINUE READING
