DURING the past few years various antifungal agents were introduced for the treatment of tinea capitis, especially the anthropophilic 1 type caused by Microsporum audouini. Conflicting results have been reported, with cure rates varying from 10 to 100 per cent. 2 In general, the time required for cure has been six or more months of arduous, meticulous treatment. As a consequence, many physicians resorted to x-ray epilation, which unquestionably is the most rapid method of therapy today. However… Expand

Local treatment of tinea capitis.
TLDR
The application of recently developed effective fungicides to the scalp, the employment of special solvents and vehicles that might penetrate the hair follicle and the keratin of the hair, and the use of cataphoresis to carry out treatment are explored. Expand
