Tinea manuum is a common superficial fungal infection which is usually coexistent with tinea pedis; there are few studies available on the epidemiology of tinea manuum at present. This study aims to investigate the epidemiology of tinea manuum and its correlation with tinea pedis in south China. A total of 280 patients with tinea manuum were recruited. The epidemiological and clinical data were analyzed, and causative agents were isolated and identified mycologically. Totally, 84.3 % patients…

Patients with fungal infections of the plantar aspect of both feet often exhibit palmar involvement or onychomycosis or both of only one hand, and the only previous study attempting to correlate handedness with the presence of a fungal infection found that although most subjects were right-handed, the majority of infections were present on the left hand.
