Endangered Zoonotic Fungal Species from Chicken (Gallus gallus domestics).
Authors: Yamaguchi S Abstract Lophophyton gallinae (Microsporum gallinae) is a zoophilic fungus that causes ringworm in chickens and related species, and occasionally in humans. There are 45 human cases worldwide including a Japanese case from Okinawa in 2009. After the finding of the human L. gallinae case, 793 chickens in Japan, including 293 from the mainland and 500 from the Nansei Island areas, were investigated to determine the prevalence of dermatophytes and their related fungal species. The survey was carried out from December 2008 to March 2013. Various dermatophytes and related fungal species were isolate...

[Tinea capitis-diagnostic measures in an outbreak situation : Case report and review of the literature].
Authors: Mayser P Abstract In a preschool a long-lasting outbreak of Trichophyton (T.) tonsurans tinea capitis was stopped by a concurrent screening of all persons at-risk (N = 264) with the hairbrush technique and a therapy based on clinical picture as well as on the quantitative results of the culture. In addition to the 5 symptomatic patients 10 asymptomatic carriers undetected until now were especially important as vectors.

Host- and pathogen-dependent susceptibility and predisposition to dermatophytosis.
Abstract Dermatophytes are a highly specialized group of keratinophilic and keratinolytic filamentous fungi causing a ringworm disease called dermatophytosis or superficial mycoses. Although dermatophyte infections do not threaten the host's life, they lower its quality in humans by causing discomfort related to cosmetic problems and through their epidemiological significance, whereas in farm animals they are responsible for economic losses and constitute a source of the spread of spores. Evidence from countless observational studies that have been conducted over the last 90 years indicates that dermatophyt...

Molecular diagnosis of kerion celsi caused by Trichophyton tonsurans in a Italian child
We report a case of Kerion celsi caused by Trichophyton tonsurans in a child following an excoriation to the scalp caused by a fall in a public park. The use of multiplex PCR assay has enabled rapid diagnosis of tinea capitis from T. tonsurans with a result in less than 48 hours and therefore the possibility of quickly starting antifungal therapy. The patient had a complete recovery at the end of the antifungal treatment. (Source: Medical Mycology Case Reports)

Tinea Capitis in Campania: A 5-Year Retrospective Study in Childhood and Adolescence (2013 –2018)
Discussion: We underline the importance of the differential diagnosis of scalp lesions, the possibility of the so-called “tinea incognita” in some cases, and the species isolated in fungal cultures. A high number ofTrichophyton mentagrophytes were isolated (71/86; 82%) and this phenomenon may be due to a particular suspected clinical picture of tinea capitis that induced the dermatologist to ask for a more detailed exam.Skin Appendage Disord (Source: Skin Appendage Disorders)

Treatment of Tinea Capitis
Tinea capitis is a common fungal infection of the hair of the scalp affecting predominately prepubertal children. In the US, griseofulvin has been considered a first-line therapy agent for tinea capitis since the 1960s. However, it has been falling out of favor due to significant treatment failure, high cost, and long duration of treatment. Other antifungal agents have been researched as an alternative to griseofulvin. This paper will review the relevant pharmacologic properties, dosing, cost, efficacy, and adverse events profile for griseofulvin, terbinafine, itraconazole, fluconazole, and some adjuvant therapy options su...

Trichoscopic features of tinea capitis in a straight-haired Hispanic woman
Comma and corkscrew hairs are trichoscopic markers of tinea capitis. Although comma hairs have been reported in both black and white patients with tinea capitis, corkscrew hairs were previously hypothesized to manifest exclusively in patients with curly or African hair types. However, we report a significant number of comma and corkscrew hairs in a Hispanic female patient with naturally straight hair and Trichophyton tonsurans tinea capitis. Thus, dermoscopy is a rapid, noninvasive, and cost-effective tool for evaluating tinea capitis and should be used in combination with culture in all patients regardless of hair texture...

Dermatophytosis: Prevalence of Dermatophytes and Non-Dermatophyte Fungi from Patients Attending Arsho Advanced Medical Laboratory, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Conclusions: Failure to detect or isolate fungal pathogens in a large number of clinical samples revealed the limitation of clinical diagnosis in differentiating dermatophytosis from other skin infections demonstrating that clinical diagnosis should be coupled with laboratory methods. Recovery of large number of non-dermatophyte fungi along with dermatophytes in our study showed that non-dermatophyte fungi are emerging as important causes of dermatophytosis, warranting the implementation of intensive epidemiological studies of dermatophytosis across the country.

Three Skulls Dating from the French Revolutionary Years Diagnosed with Tinea Capitis: A Paleopathologic Approach
The Musée Dupuytren was a Parisian pathology museum established in 1835. This museum hosted 3 skulls with severe craniofacial lesions initially tagged as aggressive forms of tinea capitis. The aim of this study was to investigate these specimens and discuss the initial diagnosis. Historical investigations were conducted based on the biographic data from the tags of the 3 skulls and entries on the catalog of the museum. Age was determined using dentition and the patency of cranial base synchondroses. The computed tomography scans were performed using standard medical devices. The 3 skulls were from the late 18th to e...

Examen mycologique en dermatologie.
Abstract Dermatomycoses are dermatological infections very commonly encountered in private dermatological practice since they affect up to one third of the population. However, the symptoms are very often shared by other skin infections and disorders and may be highly atypical. It is thus impossible to make a diagnosis with any certainty on clinical grounds alone. For this reason, mycological diagnosis is essential to either confirm or rule out dermatomycosis, and is unavoidable when antifungal therapy is required for the treatment of ringworm of the scalp or beard, or for onychomycosis. It is also vital where the...

Analysis of chemical composition and in vitro antidermatophyte activity of ethanol extracts of Dryopteris fragrans (L.) Schott
ConclusionsThe ethanol extracts of D. fragrans had antifungal and fungicidal activity against dermatophytes and was likely a strain-dependent fungicidal agent. Interaction between drugs was indifferent on tested isolates. The inhibition of ergosterol biosynthesis was one of the antifungal mechanisms of the ethanol extracts of D. fragrans. These results showed that the ethanol extracts of D. fragrans could be explored for promising antifungal drugs. Dozens of phloroglucinol derivatives may contribute to high antifungal activity of the ethanol extracts of D. fragrans.Graphical abstract (Source: Journal of Ethnopharmacology)
