Combination of Photodynamic Therapy and Oral Antifungals for the Treatment of Onychomycosis.

Pharmaceuticals (Basel) 2022 Jun 7;15(6). Epub 2022 Jun 7.

Department of Dermatology, Miguel Servet University Hospital, IIS Aragón, Universidad de Zaragoza, 50009 Zaragoza, Spain.

Onychomycosis accounts for 50% of nail disorders, making it one of the most prevalent fungal diseases and a therapeutic challenge. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) could constitute a therapeutic alternative, owing to its good adherence, the low probability of resistance, the lack of interaction with antimicrobials, and its favorable adverse effect profile. This retrospective observational study included all patients with a microbiological diagnosis of onychomycosis treated with PDT at Miguel Servet University Hospital, Zaragoza (Spain), between January 2013 and June 2021.

Chronic Eczema Developing Over Skin Treated for Dermatophytosis in Atopic Patients -Importance of Treating Gently and Intelligently.

Indian J Dermatol 2022 Jan-Feb;67(1):93

Department of Dermatology, Bhojani Clinic, Babasaheb Ambedkar Road, Matunga, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

A novel observation of chronic eczema developing over the skin of adequately treated lesions of tinea cruris/tinea corporis in six atopic individuals is being shared. We propose that the skin of atopic individuals affected by dermatophytosis be observed for secondary changes even after the complete resolution of the lesions. The use of bland emollients with topical antifungal agents should be encouraged in atopic patients. Read More

Effect of Household Laundering, Heat Drying, and Freezing on the Survival of Dermatophyte Conidia.

J Fungi (Basel) 2022 May 23;8(5). Epub 2022 May 23.

Parasitology-Mycology Department, Avicenne Hospital, AP-HP, Sorbonne Paris Nord University, 93009 Bobigny, France.

Dermatomycoses are one of the most common dermatological infectious diseases. Dermatophytoses, such as tinea pedis (athlete's foot) in adults and tinea capitis in children, are the most prevalent fungal diseases caused by dermatophytes. The transmission of anthropophilic dermatophytoses occurs almost exclusively through indirect contact with patient-contaminated belongings or environments and, subsequently, facilitates the spread of the infection to others.

Lübeck Institute for Experimental Dermatology, Institute for Cardiogenetics, University of Lübeck, Ratzeburger Allee 160, 23562, Lübeck, Germany.

Onychomycosis (OM) is a common fungal nail infection. Based on the rich mycobial diversity in healthy toenails, we speculated that this is lost in OM due to the predominance of a single pathogen. We used next generation sequencing to obtain insights into the biodiversity of fungal communities in both healthy individuals and OM patients. Read More

Epidemiology of dermatomycoses and onychomycoses in Ireland (2001-2020): A single-institution review.

Mycoses 2022 Jul;65(7):770-779

School of Medicine and Centre for Interventions in Infection, Inflammation, and Immunity (4i), University of Limerick, Limerick, Ireland.

Background: Fungal skin infections are recognised as one of the most common health disorders globally, and dermatophyte infections of the skin, hair and nails are the most common fungal infections. Dermatophytes can be classified as anthropophilic, zoophilic or geophilic species based on their primary habitat association, and this classification makes epidemiological analysis useful for the prevention and control of these infections. The Irish contribution to the epidemiology of these infections has been scant, with just two papers (both reporting paediatric tinea capitis only) published in the last 20 years, and none in the last seven.

Case Report and Literature Review of Impetigo-Like Tinea Faciei.

Infect Drug Resist 2022 12;15:2513-2521. Epub 2022 May 12.

Laboratory of Medical Mycology, Jining No. 1 People's Hospital, Jining, 272000, People's Republic of China.

Impetigo, commonly caused by bacteria, is characterized by lesions of pustules, bullae or golden yellow crusts; it is seldom caused by fungi. Here, we report one case of a 17-year-old female patient with a 1-month history of erythematous pustules on her left cheek. She was clinically diagnosed with "impetigo", but did not respond to 1 week of treatment with topical mupirocin cream (antibacterial agent). Read More

Department of Dermatology, Medical and Clinical Research Institute, National Research Centre, Giza, Egypt.

Tinea capitis (TC) is the most common dermatophyte infection in children. Fungal culture; although a gold standard of diagnosis, requires time for the final results which can favor horizontal transmission. Trichoscopy helps in rapid diagnosis and could work as a monitoring tool during antifungal therapy. Read More

Response surface methodological approach for optimization of photodynamic therapy of onychomycosis using chlorin e6 loaded nail penetration enhancer vesicles.

J Photochem Photobiol B 2022 Jul 5;232:112461. Epub 2022 May 5.

Pharmaceutical Nano-Technology Laboratory, Department of Medical Applications of Laser, National Institute of Laser Enhanced Sciences (NILES), Cairo University, Cairo, Egypt. Electronic address:

Antimicrobial photodynamic inactivation (aPDI) has a tremendous potential as an alternative therapeutic modality to conventional antifungals in treatment of onychomycosis, yet the nail barrier properties and the deep-seated nature of fungi within the nails remain challenging. Therefore, the aim of this study was to prepare, optimize, and characterize Chorin e6 (Ce6) nail penetration enhancer containing vesicles (Ce6-nPEVs) and evaluate their photodynamic mediated effect against Trichophyton rubrum (T.rubrum); the main causative agent of onychomycosis.

Disinfection trials with terbinafine-susceptible and terbinafine-resistant dermatophytes.

Mycoses 2022 Jul;65(7):741-746

Department of Dermatology, Zealand University Hospital, Roskilde, Denmark.

Background: Treatment of tinea pedis and onychomycosis is complicated by high rates of reinfection and the emergence of terbinafine-resistant strains of Trichophyton spp. Effective disinfection of contaminated socks is an important measure. Appropriate washing reduces the risk of reinfection and is paramount in treating tinea pedis and onychomycosis. Read More

Servicio de Dermatología, Hospital de Pediatría S.A.M.I.C. Prof. Dr. Juan P. Garrahan, Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Microsporum gypseum is a geophilic fungus that can cause inflammatory skin lesions in heathy people. More extensive lesions have been described in immunocompromised patients. We present a patient with extensive dermatophytosis, which mycological examination led the identification of Candida sp, Epidermophyton Floccosum and Trichophyton tonsurans and showed poor response to treatment with griseofulvina and itraconazol at usual doses.
