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.

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.

Diagnosis and Management of Plantar Dermatoses.

J Am Board Fam Med 2022 Mar-Apr;35(2):435-442

From the University of Minnesota Medical School, Minneapolis (CR, SK, DRP, CLB); Department of Dermatology, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis (SK, DRP, CLB).

Plantar dermatoses (PD) are common, occurring either spontaneously on healthy skin or developing secondarily from previously established foot disease. PD share similar symptoms and morphology, making them challenging to differentiate. A few of the most frequently encountered PD include tinea pedis, psoriasis, contact dermatitis, dyshidrotic dermatitis (or recurrent vesicular palmoplantar dermatitis), and juvenile plantar dermatosis.

Lemongrass and Perilla Essential Oils Synergistically Increased Antimicrobial Activity.

Med Mycol J 2021 ;62(4):79-87

Teikyo University Institute of Medical Mycology.

We postulated that disinfection of viable Trichophyton species in shoes would help reduce the number of patients with tinea pedis in Japan and that this might be accomplished safely using volatile components of essential oils. As vapor of lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) oil and citral have strong antimicrobial activities against Trichophyton, we examined the conditions under which lemongrass oil or citral show optimal antimicrobial activity in shoes. First, we investigated whether or not a strong antimicrobial effect could be obtained by combining with terpene aldehydes or aromatic aldehydes. Read More

Autoeczematization: A Strange Id Reaction of the Skin.

Cutis 2021 Sep;108(3):163-166

Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, Newark.

Autoeczematization, or id reaction, is a disseminated eczematous reaction that occurs due to a release of antigen(s) after exposure to a primary stimulus, with the eczema spreading to a site distant from the original one. This seemingly perplexing generalization most commonly is associated with stasis dermatitis or tinea pedis, though it may be caused by a wide variety of other disorders. We postulate that T cells are reactive to keratinocyte antigens that are produced during keratinocyte damage, which induce this autoeczematization. Read More

One size does not fit all: the need for individualized treatment based on factors that may affect the therapeutic outcome of efinaconazole 10% solution for the treatment of toenail onychomycosis.

Int J Dermatol 2021 Oct 3;60(10):1296-1302. Epub 2021 Jul 3.

Ortho-Dermatologics, Bridgewater, NJ, USA.

Successful management of onychomycosis is a challenge because cure rates with most antifungals are relatively low and recurrence rates are high. A drug-based approach by treating the nail alone may not suffice. There are several host-related factors (age, sex, body mass index [BMI], and patient's quality of life), disease-related factors (disease severity, duration, and the number of toenails affected), and comorbidities (tinea pedis and diabetes) that may affect treatment efficacy.

Efinaconazole topical solution (10%) for the treatment of onychomycosis in adult and pediatric patients.

Expert Rev Anti Infect Ther 2022 Jan 30;20(1):3-15. Epub 2021 Jun 30.

Mediprobe Research Inc., London, ON, CAN.

Introduction: Onychomycosis, a common nail disorder caused by fungal infection, can be managed pharmaceutically with oral or topical treatments. While oral treatments are often used first-line to treat nail infections, these systemic antifungals are not appropriate for all patients, and no oral treatments are approved for use in children in the USA. Given this need, topical antifungals were developed, which can be used as monotherapy or in combination with oral drugs. Read More
