Authors: Sato T, Asahina Y, Toshima S, Yaguchi T, Yamazaki K Abstract Wood's lamp was demonstrated to be useful in three cases of dermatophytoma treated during clinical dermatological practice. Clinical signs of onychomycosis are longitudinal yellow and white striae on the nail plate and are diagnosed by KOH direct microscopic examination. For its treatment, surgical debridement is recommended. Usefulness of the Wood's lamp for diagnosis of tinea capitis caused by Microsporum canis is standard. In the first and second cases, we used Wood's lamp (Woody™) to make a clear margin for debridement of onychomycosis....

Two of them, 4 and 8 years old, underwent mycological diagnostic workup. However, no pathogens familiar in this country, such as Microsporum (M.) canis or Trichophyton (T.) tonsurans, were isolated, but instead that of a dermatophyte that has not been found in Germany for decades. Both dermatophyte isolates showed white-beige-brownish colonies with a flat, radiating edge and a central, verrucous curvat...
