Congenital ichthyosis associated with Trichophyton rubrum tinea, imitating drug hypersensitivity reaction.

Med Mycol Case Rep 2020 Sep 29;29:15-17. Epub 2020 May 29.

Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Oncodermatology, Medical Faculty, University of Pécs, Pécs, 7632, Hungary.

Tinea corporis and congenital ichthyoses are common dermatological diseases. The association of the two disorders is plausible due to the immunological and barrier defects of ichthyoses; however, relatively limited literature is available in this field. Since superficial fungal infections possess atypical morphology in keratinization disorders, and could imitate other dermatological conditions, the correct diagnosis can be challenging. Read More

Trichophyton indotineae sp. nov.: A New Highly Terbinafine-Resistant Anthropophilic Dermatophyte Species.

Mycopathologia 2020 May 24. Epub 2020 May 24.

Department of Dermatology, Tokyo Medical University, 6-1-1 Nishishinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, 160-0023, Japan.

In this report, we describe the first isolation of two highly terbinafine (TRF)-resistant Trichophyton interdigitale-like strains from a Nepali patient and an Indian patient with tinea corporis in Japan. These strains (designated NUBS19006 and NUBS19007) exhibited a TRF minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) of > 32 mg/L and contained a missense mutation (Phe397Leu) in squalene epoxidase (SQLE) gene. The internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region sequences amplified from the isolates (NUBS19006 and NUBS19007) were 99. Read More

Tinea corporis caused by Trichophyton equinum transmitted from asymptomatic dogs to two siblings.

Braz J Microbiol 2019 Dec 9. Epub 2019 Dec 9.

Faculty of Biological Sciences, Institute of Genetics and Microbiology, Department of Mycology and Genetics, University of Wroclaw, Przybyszewskiego 63/77, 51-148, Wroclaw, Poland.

Each year, millions of people worldwide are affected by superficial mycoses, which are frequently caused by dermatophytes having affinity to the scalp, nails, hair and the stratum corneum of the skin. The changing reservoirs of zoophilic dermatophytes, the numerous reports of animal carrier status, and the increasing number of pets make the diagnosis difficult, which is usually impossible based only on medical history. Herein we present a case report of tinea corporis caused by Trichophyton equinum in siblings who had no contact with horses. Read More

Dermoscopy - a simple and rapid in vivo diagnostic technique for tinea incognito.

An Bras Dermatol 2019 Sep - Oct;94(5):612-614. Epub 2019 Sep 30.

Department of Dermatology & STD, Patna Medical College & Hospital, Patna, India.

Tinea incognito resulting from corticosteroid abuse is becoming very common in the tropics. Its diagnosis is tricky owing to its confusing morphology, as well as practical and technical issues associated with mycological tests. Dermoscopy has now evolved as a novel diagnostic tool for diagnosing tinea incognito in such challenging situations, since the typical hair changes such as Morse-code hairs, deformable hairs, translucent hairs, comma and cork screw hairs, and perifollicular scaling may be seen despite steroid use, irrespective of mycological results.

Changing Trend of Superficial Mycoses with Increasing Nondermatophyte Mold Infection: A Clinicomycological Study at a Tertiary Referral Center in Assam.

Indian J Dermatol 2019 Jul-Aug;64(4):261-265

Department of Microbiology, Gauhati Medical College, Guwahati, Assam, India.

Background: Superficial mycosis is the commonest infections affecting human globally. Though they do not cause mortality, their clinical significance lies in their morbidity, recurrence, and cosmetic disfigurement, thus creating a major public health problem. The infections are more prevalent in the tropical regions. Read More

A unique multidrug-resistant clonal Trichophyton population distinct from Trichophyton mentagrophytes/Trichophyton interdigitale complex causing an ongoing alarming dermatophytosis outbreak in India: Genomic insights and resistance profile.

Fungal Genet Biol 2019 12 3;133:103266. Epub 2019 Sep 3.

Department of Medical Mycology, Vallabhbhai Patel Chest Institute, University of Delhi, Delhi, India. Electronic address:

There has been a considerable upsurge of extensive, treatment recalcitrant, dermatophytosis presenting as tinea corporis and tinea cruris in India since the past few years. Genome analysis of Trichophytonspecies causing severe superficial dermatophytosis in North India confirmed a unique clade related to the T.mentagrophytes/interdigitale complex, seeming to belong to an early diverging clade of the complex.

Trichophyton mentagrophytes and T interdigitale genotypes are associated with particular geographic areas and clinical manifestations.

Mycoses 2019 Nov 9;62(11):1084-1091. Epub 2019 Sep 9.

Infectious and Tropical Diseases Research Center, Health Research Institute, Ahvaz Jundishapur University of Medical Sciences, Ahvaz, Iran.

The fungi Trichophyton mentagrophytes and T interdigitale account for significant amount of dermatophytosis cases worldwide. These two dermatophytes form a species complex and have a number of ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region genotypes, allowing simultaneous species identification and strain typing. Our aim was to describe the geographic distribution of T mentagrophytes/T interdigitale ITS region genotypes and find an association between the genotypes and clinical presentations of respective infections.

Antifungal resistance in dermatophytes: Recent trends and therapeutic implications.

Fungal Genet Biol 2019 11 19;132:103255. Epub 2019 Jul 19.

Department of Medical Mycology, Vallabhbhai Patel Chest Institute, University of Delhi, New Delhi 110007, India.

Dermatophytoses or tinea refers to superficial fungal infection of keratinized tissues. Although generally considered easy to treat, recalcitrant infections, presenting as extensive and difficult to treat tinea corporis and cruris, are on the rise in some parts of the world. The situation demands an understanding of the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties of the available antifungals against dermatophytes and the possible contribution of drug resistance and other factors to the present scenario.

Epidemiology of dermatophytosis in northeastern Iran; A subtropical region.

Curr Med Mycol 2019 Jun;5(2):16-21

Department of Biology, Biotechnical Faculty, University of Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Background And Purpose: Dermatophytes as the causative agents of dermatophytosis (ringworm) are widely spread around the world. Accurate identification of dermatophytes in one area can be particularly important for epidemiological studies. Regarding this, the aim of the present study was to describe the species spectrum of dermatophytes, isolated from patients in Mashhad city, Iran, using the molecular-based method. Read More
