Rev Chil Pediatr 2017 Apr;88(2):258-262

Servicio de Dermatología, Hospital Infantil de México Dr. Federico Gómez, Ciudad de México, México.

Trichomycosis is a superficial infection caused by Corynebacterium flavescens, which regularly affects axillary, and to a a lesser extent, pubic, scrotal and intergluteal, and exceptionally, head hairs or trichomycosis capitis (TC). This condition is characterised by the formation of bacterial nodules. Clinically, it can be confused with white piedra or pediculosis. Read More

An unusual presentation: trichomycosis (trichobacteriosis) capitis in an infant.

Turk J Pediatr 2014 Nov-Dec;56(6):677-9

Department of Dermatology, Gaziosmanpasa University Faculty of Medicine, Tokat, Turkey.

Trichomycosis (trichobacteriosis) is an asymptomatic superficial bacterial colonization of the hair shaft that is clinically characterized by pale yellowish, reddish or blackish sticky, cylindrical concretions surrounding the hair shaft in the axillary or pubic region. As far as we know, the first and only case of trichomycosis capitis was reported in a 8-year-old boy in 2011. We encountered no cases of trichomycosis in infancy in the literature. Read More

Piedra, is an asymptomatic fungal infection of the hair shaft, resulting in the formation of nodules of different hardness on the infected hair. The infection also known as Trichomycosis nodularis is a superficial fungal infection arising from the pathogen being restricted to the stratum corneum with little or no tissue reaction. The nodules are a concretion of hyphae and fruiting bodies of the fungus. Read More

Trichomycosis axillaris is a common tropical disease usually affecting the hair shafts of the axillae, characterized by nodular concretions along the hair shafts caused by Corynebacterium tenuis. We describe a 38-year-old patient with trichomycosis axillaris. Treatment, which included shaving of affected hair, followed by topical 3% erythromycin cream and clotrimazole powder was fully effective. Read More

Skin infections are common and may be caused by bacteria, fungi or viruses. Breaks in the skin integrity, particularly those that inoculate pathogens into the dermis, frequently cause or exacerbate skin infections. Bacterial skin infections caused by corynebacteria include erythrasma, trichomycosis axillaris and pitted keratolysis. Read More

Ultrastructure of black piedra.

Department of Dermatology, University of São Paulo, Brazil.

Black piedra or nodular trichomycosis is a superficial mycosis of the hair shaft, prevalent in the tropical areas of South America and Asia and caused by the fungus Piedraia hortai. By scanning electron microscopy the invasion of the hair keratin and the elimination of spores through canals was seen. Transmission electron microscopy showed a complex, well-organized microsystem, in which cement-producing hyphae constitute the pseudoparenchyma. Read More

F Levit

J Am Acad Dermatol 1988 Apr;18(4 Pt 1):778-9

Department of Dermatology, Northwestern University Medical School, Chicago, IL.

Trichomycosis axillaris is a trivial disease of worldwide occurrence that is believed to be caused by the genus Corynebacteria. In addition to invading the cuticle of the hair, the Corynebacteria are believed to elaborate a material that, together with colonies of bacteria, make up the concretions formed on the hair shaft. A careful review of the literature on this disease indicates that this latter belief may not be correct. Read More

[Clinical and mycological study of 11 cases of genitopubic trichosporosis nodosa (white piedra)].

Ann Dermatol Venereol 1987 ;114(6-7):819-27

Service de Dermatologie, Fondation A. de Rothschild, Paris.

Piedra (stone in Spanish) is the name given to a trichomycosis characterized by the formation of nodules resembling small stones. There are two varieties of the disease, depending on the colour of the nodules: white piedra and black piedra. Black piedra sharply differs from white piedra on three main scores: a) the causative agent is a black filamentous and sexed dematicious fungus, Piedraia hortai; b) the disease exclusively affects the scalp, and c) the geographical distribution of human black piedra is limited to tropical and subtropical areas (South America, South-East Asia).

Electron microscopy, histochemistry, and microbiology of bacterial adhesion in trichomycosis axillaris.

J Am Acad Dermatol 1984 Jun;10(6):1005-14

Study of a case of trichomycosis axillaris by electron microscopy revealed a specific encapsulated Corynebacterium adhering to but not penetrating the hair shaft. External to this were two other biochemically distinctive pleomorphic Corynebacteria shown to be incapable of direct adherence to the hair. All three types were entrapped in a virtually insoluble cement substance, which they elaborate and which is responsible for the grossly visible colonization that is so characteristic of this disease.

Bacterial skin infections are important to recognize because we have the means to eradicate almost all of them. Primary skin infections are mainly caused by staphylococci or streptococci. Staphylococci infections present as furuncles and carbuncles, superficial folliculitis, impetigo or rarely the Scalded Skin Syndrome. Read More

Authors:

Arch Dermatol 1979 Apr;115(4):444-5

Trichomycosis is a bacterial infection of hair that involves the axilla and, uncommonly, the pubis. The causative agent of trichomycosis pubis is probably the same as that in trichomycosis axillaris, as determined by culture and electron microscopy. We believe that increased awareness of trichomycosis pubis will show it to be common in certain environments. Read More
