    Tinea folliculorum complicating tinea of the glabrous skin: an important yet neglected entity.
    Med Mycol 2017 Oct 26. Epub 2017 Oct 26.
    College of Medicine, Chang Gung University, Taoyuan, Taiwan.
    Dermatophytes are capable of infecting the skin and its appendages such as nails and hairs producing a variety of clinical conditions. Hair invasion by dermatophytes is a key feature of tinea capitis and tinea barbae but not of tinea of glabrous skin. In this project, we studied the clinico-mycological aspects of follicular involvement in patients with dermatophytosis of the glabrous skin. Read More

    Management of mycoses in daily practice.
    G Ital Dermatol Venereol 2017 Dec;152(6):642-650
    Department of Pathophysiology and Transplantation, Università degli Studi di Milano, IRCCS Foundation, Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, Milan, Italy -
    The guideline recommendations, albeit founded on thorough reviews of clinically relevant literature data, are often not immediately adaptable to everyday life. Considering the marked heterogeneity of superficial mycoses, each of them requires specific management in a real life context; in all cases diagnostic confirmation is required with microscopic and culture examination. In tinea capitis oral therapy is necessary (minimum six weeks) and should be continued until clinical and, above all, mycological healing. Read More

    Treatment of Dermatophytosis in Elderly, Children, and Pregnant Women.
    Indian Dermatol Online J 2017 Sep-Oct;8(5):310-318
    Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology, PGIMER, Chandigarh, India.
    Dermatophytic infection of the skin and its appendages is a common occurrence. Though usually straightforward, treatment of dermatophytosis becomes notably challenging in certain population groups - pregnant women, children, and elderly. Treatment with topical azoles/allylamines alone is effective in limited cutaneous disease in all three groups. Read More

    [Diseases affecting the scalp].
    Cas Lek Cesk 2017 ;156(3):137-140
    The skin of the scalp differs from the skin on the other areas of the body because of a higher density of hair follicles and higher sebum production. These, together with the presence of hair, provide a suitable environment for superficial infections, infestations and inflammatory diseases. The good condition of the scalp has a significant impact on the patient's mental well-being and social interaction. Read More

    Remarkable Works and Cases in the History of Medical Mycology in Japan.
    Med Mycol J 2017 ;58(2):J29-J33
    Nagasaki Ekisaikai Hospital.
    Several pathogenic fungi and cases related to Japanese medical mycologists were reviewed. Trichosporon inkin (as Sarcinomyces inkin) was reported as a pathogen of scrotal lesion by Oho in 1921, and Trichosporon asahii was isolated from generalized keratotic lesions in 1922 by Akagi in Japan. They were once included in Trichophyton beigelii, but then based on revision using DNA molecular technology, were returned to their original names. Read More

    Harefuah 2016 Oct;155(10):637-641
    Department of Sociology, University of Toronto The Gertner Institute for Epidemiology and Health Policy Research.
    Introduction: Ringworm of the scalp (Tinea Capitis), a fungal skin ailment that appears on the scalp, was treated until the early sixties by radiation therapy. It was discovered during the seventies that radiation treatment for ringworm may be associated with a higher risk of cancerous and benign tumors in the head and neck area for patients undergoing treatment. In 1995, Israel enacted a law to compensate ringworm irradiation patients which provided monetary compensation for those who were treated between 1946 and 1960. Read More

    Analysis of trichoscopic signs observed in 24 patients presenting tinea capitis: Hypotheses based on physiopathology and proposed new classification.

    Tinea capitis is a contagious dermatophyte infection of scalp and associated hairs. On the other hand, asymptomatic carriage is a status of positive dermatophyte scalp culture, but without signs or symptoms of tinea capitis, and no evidence of hair shaft invasion confirmed by direct microscopy. Tinea capitis and asymptomatic carriage mostly occur in children, but adult females are becoming another population in recent decades. Read More

    The Gilbert Israeli Neurofibromatosis Center, Tel-Aviv Medical Center, Tel-Aviv, Israel.
    Neurofibromatosis type II (NF2) is a genetic disease characterized by bilateral vestibular schwannomas (VS) and other nerve system tumors. However, such tumors may be associated with environmental, rather than a genetic, etiology. Individuals fulfilling the clinical criteria of NF2 who had been treated by head ionized irradiation at a young age were compared for disease characteristics and molecular analysis with non-irradiated sporadic NF2 cases.

    Biotechnology Branch, University Institute of Engineering and Technology (U.I.E.T), Punjab University, Chandigarh 160014, India.
    Dermatophyte is a group of closely related fungi that have the capacity to invade keratinized tissue of humans and other animals. The infection known as dermatophytosis, caused by members of the genera Microsporum, Trichophyton, and Epidermophyton includes infection to the groin (tinea cruris), beard (tinea barbae), scalp (tinea capitis), feet (tinea pedis), glabrous skin (tinea corporis), nail (tinea unguium), and hand (tinea manuum). The identification of evolutionary relationship between these three genera of dermatophyte is epidemiologically important to understand their pathogenicity. Read More

    [Dermatophyte : Current situation].
    Hautarzt 2017 Apr;68(4):316-323
    , Hofmannstr. 11, 35444, Biebertal, Deutschland.
    Currently, a mycid is defined as hyperergic reaction that develops from a remote localized infection and in which no fungus is detectable. Criteria for a mycid caused by a dermatophyte (dermatophytid) are (1) proven dermatophytosis elsewhere, (2) no evidence for fungal elements in the lesions of the -id reaction, (3) initially often worsening of the lesions under therapy with highly potent systemic antimycotics, and (4) clearing after the dermatophytosis has been treated sufficiently. The most common dermatophytid is a symmetrical dyshidrotic mycid of the hands in connection with an often highly inflammatory mycotic infection of the feet especially by Trichophyton mentagrophytes.
