Trichoscopic features of tinea capitis in a straight-haired Hispanic woman.

Dermatol Online J 2018 Nov 15;24(11). Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Department of Dermatology, University of California Irvine, Irvine, California.

Comma and corkscrew hairs are trichoscopic markers of tinea capitis. Although comma hairs have been reported in both black and white patients with tinea capitis, corkscrew hairs were previously hypothesized to manifest exclusively in patients with curly or African hair types. However, we report a significant number of comma and corkscrew hairs in a Hispanic female patient with naturally straight hair and Trichophyton tonsurans tinea capitis. Read More

Trichoscopy of Dark Scalp.

Skin Appendage Disord 2018 Nov 18;5(1):1-8. Epub 2018 Jul 18.

Department of Dermatology, University of Miami, Miami, Florida, USA.

Trichoscopy (dermoscopy of the hair and scalp) is a technique that improves diagnostic accuracy and follow-up with hair and scalp disorders. Although several studies of trichoscopy have been made in Caucasian and Asian populations, little has been published regarding trichoscopy findings in skin of color, despite the great prevalence of hair diseases in populations with this kind of skin. The aim of this review was to describe the trichoscopic features of normal scalp and of hair disorders in patients with dark skin phototypes. Read More

Molecular epidemiology and in vitro antifungal susceptibility of Trichophyton schoenleinii, agent of tinea capitis favosa.

Mycoses 2018 Dec 29. Epub 2018 Dec 29.

Westerdijk Fungal Biodiversity Institute, Utrecht, The Netherlands.

Trichophyton schoenleinii is an anthropophilic dermatophyte usually causing tinea favosa. Only few studies have provided data on molecular epidemiology and antifungal profiles of this fungus due to its limited prevalence after 1950s. Forty-nine strains from Asia (n=27), Africa (n=10), Europe (n=10) and from unknown regions (n=2) were analyzed with Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism fingerprinting (AFLP) to reveal intraspecific genetic diversity in this dataset.

Dario Didona, MD, Prima Divisione Dermatologica , Istituto Dermopatico dell'Immacolata-IRCCS, Via dei Mont di Creta 104 , 00167 Rome, Italy;

Cutaneous sarcoidosis is not an uncommon disorder, and the skin can be the sole manifestation in about 10% of patients. However, when the involved anatomical area of the cutaneous sarcoidosis is the scalp and it presents as a scarring alopecia, there is an increased risk of a systemic disease (1,2). A 79-year-old Caucasian male patient presented to our Institute with annular and painless plaques of the scalp, with variable diameter, showing a reddish and yellowish color (Figure 1, a). Read More

The Burden of Serious Fungal Infections in Cameroon.

J Fungi (Basel) 2018 Mar 30;4(2). Epub 2018 Mar 30.

National Aspergillosis Centre, Wythenshawe Hospital and The University of Manchester, Manchester M13 9PL, UK.

Fungal infections are frequent in Cameroon, and invasive fungal infections are sometimes detected, usually in HIV-infected patients. For these reasons, we have estimated the burden of fungal infections. Using published literature and population estimates for the at-risk group, we used deterministic modelling to derive national incidence and prevalence estimates for the most serious fungal diseases.

[Tinea capitis and onychomycosis due to Trichophyton soudanense : Successful treatment with fluconazole-literature review].

Hautarzt 2018 Sep;69(9):737-750

Labor für medizinische Mikrobiologie, Partnerschaft Prof. Dr. med. Pietro Nenoff & Dr. med. Constanze Krüger, 04571, Rötha/OT Mölbis, Deutschland.

Two African girls who moved to Germany only 4 weeks ago presented to the dermatological office with itchy and scaling skin lesions of the scalp and the thighs. The entire scalp of both girls was affected by a white, dry dandruff and a squamous crust. Dry centrifugal spreading erythematosquamous lesions were found on the thighs. Read More

Emergence of African species of dermatophytes in tinea capitis: A 17-year experience in a Montreal pediatric hospital.

Pediatr Dermatol 2018 May 24;35(3):323-328. Epub 2018 Mar 24.

Department of Social and Preventive Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Laval University, Quebec, QC, Canada.

Background/objectives: An increase in dermatophyte infections caused by African species is reported in countries receiving African immigrants. Our goal was to determine the epidemiologic and clinical characteristics of tinea capitis in children infected with African species of dermatophytes in Montreal, Canada.

Methods: Demographic and clinical data from medical records of children infected with African species of dermatophytes were retrieved retrospectively (2000-2016) at Sainte-Justine University Hospital Center. Read More

A study of skin disease spectrum occurring in Angola phototype V-VI population in Luanda.

Int J Dermatol 2018 Jul 24;57(7):849-855. Epub 2018 Mar 24.

Luanda Medical Center, Luanda, Angola.

Background: Prevalence of skin diseases in Luanda (Angola) is unknown, and publications are barely found in the literature. We aim to describe, for the first time, the frequency of skin disease spectrum in phototype V-VI Angolan population in Luanda City.

Methods: We included Fitzpatrick phototype V-VI Angolan patients who consulted the Dermatology Unit in Luanda Medical Center during a 1-year period. Read More

Trichoscopy of alopecia areata: An update.

J Dermatol 2018 Jun 22;45(6):692-700. Epub 2018 Mar 22.

Department of Dermatology, Medical University of Warsaw, Warsaw, Poland.

The diagnosis of alopecia areata is usually based on clinical manifestations. However, there are several hair and scalp disorders that share similar clinical features with alopecia areata, such as tinea capitis, trichotillomania or traction alopecia. Trichoscopy as a fast, non-invasive and easy-to-perform technique may help to identify subtle details and establish the correct diagnosis. Read More

[Tinea capitis by Microsporum gypseum, an infrequent species].

Arch Argent Pediatr 2018 Apr;116(2):e296-e299

Servicio de Dermatología, Hospital de Tomelloso, Tomelloso, Ciudad Real, España.

Tinea capitis is considered the most frequent dermatophyte infection in children. The etiological agents vary from time to time and by geographical area, although they normally are zoophilic dermatophytes and in the last years also anthropophilic species. We report a clinical case of inflammatory tinea capitis in a 6-year-old child caused by Microsporum gypseum, a geophilic fungus pathogenic to humans and animals. Read More

Burden of Severe Fungal Infections in Burkina Faso.

J Fungi (Basel) 2018 Mar 11;4(1). Epub 2018 Mar 11.

Service de Parasitologie-Mycologie, Hôpital St Antoine, Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Paris, 75012 Paris, France.

Because of the limited access to more powerful diagnostic tools, there is a paucity of data regarding the burden of fungal infections in Burkina Faso. The aim of this study was to estimate the incidence and prevalence of serious fungal infections in this sub-Saharan country. We primarily used the national demographic data and performed a PubMed search to retrieve all published papers on fungal infections from Burkina Faso and its surrounding West African countries.

An Estimate of Severe and Chronic Fungal Diseases in the Republic of Kazakhstan.

J Fungi (Basel) 2018 Mar 8;4(1). Epub 2018 Mar 8.

Department of Clinical Mycology, Allergy and Immunology, I. Metchnikov North Western State Medical University, St. Petersburg 191015, Russia.

Our work aimed to generate a preliminary estimation of severe and chronic fungal diseases in the Republic of Kazakhstan with a model proposed by LIFE (Leading International Fungal Education). Calculations were carried out on data from 2015. Published results of studies of mycoses in Kazakhstan were identified; in the absence of national data from the scientific literature, the frequency of life-threatening and serious mycoses in defined groups of patients at risk from other countries were taken into account.

Molecular Epidemiology of Trichophyton tonsurans, the Causative Dermatophyte of the Tinea Gladiatorum Epidemic in Japan between 2011 and 2015.

Jpn J Infect Dis 2018 Mar 28;71(2):140-144. Epub 2018 Feb 28.

Department of Dermatology, Kanazawa Medical University.

Trichophyton tonsurans, a major pathogen causing tinea capitis and tinea corporis, has been isolated from contact sports-players in Japan. The molecular types of 208 strains isolated between 2011 and 2015 were determined to understand the contemporary Japanese epidemic. Of these, 142 were isolated from practitioners of judo, 28 from wrestlers, 7 from sumo wrestlers, and 31 from individuals with unknown backgrounds. Read More
