The dermatophyte antigen kit uses monoclonal antibodies that react with polysaccharides present in the dermatophyte cell wall to detect dermatophyte antigens in specimens based on the principle of immunochromatography. Clinical studies showed that the kit was very useful in the diagnosis of tinea unguium but not tinea pedis. The kit was therefore further developed as an in vitro diagnostic tool for tinea unguium and was approved by the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency of Japan. The kit's extraction solution can extract antigens from nail specimens quickly and efficiently...

Infection rate of tinea pedis is high in the elderly, wherein treatment by a dermatologist should be considered to prevent infecting their family members. About 90 percent of cases with tinea pedis is treated only using external preparations. In treating the elderly with tinea pedis using external preparation, we should take into consideration that the elderly have thinner and weaker skin compared to younger people. There are many kinds of dosage form (cream, ointments, lotion, spray, and so on) for external preparations to treat tinea pedis...

Tinea capitis is a contagious dermatophyte infection of scalp and associated hairs. On the other hand, asymptomatic carriage is a status of positive dermatophyte scalp culture, but without signs or symptoms of tinea capitis, and no evidence of hair shaft invasion confirmed by direct microscopy. Tinea capitis and asymptomatic carriage mostly occur in children, but adult females are becoming another population in recent decades. In this study, we focused on the prevalence and related fungi of tinea capitis and asymptomatic carriage in elderly by the shampoo brush method, as well as the source of transmission, in 10 nursing home residents...

BACKGROUND: Interdigital melanoma, as a subtype of acral lentiginous melanoma, is relatively uncommon in the Caucasian population. It frequently goes unrecognized for a prolonged period of time prior to diagnosis, due to its asymptomatic nature and variable clinical appearance. METHODS: We report the case of a 67-year-old Caucasian woman who presented with interdigital malignant melanoma affecting two neighboring interdigital spaces. It had evolved over a period of more than 15 years and had been initially misdiagnosed as tinea pedis due to the macerated appearance of the lesion and a positive mycologic examination...

A mycological survey on feet was performed in a nursing home with a geriatric hospital to ascertain the prevalence of tinea lesions. Of 100 subjects, comprising 62 in the nursing home and 38 in the geriatric wing, 70 were diagnosed with tinea pedis, tinea unguium (onychomycosis) or both of which 54 had onychomycosis alone, nine tinea pedis alone and seven had co-existing onychomycosis and tinea pedis. The most common clinical type of onychomycosis was distal lateral subungual onychomycosis (DLSO) at 30 cases, followed by superficial white onychomycosis (SWO) at 23 cases...

Terbinafine is one of the allylamine antifungal agents whose target is squalene epoxidase (SQLE). This agent has been extensively used in the therapy of dermatophyte infections. The incidence of patients with tinea pedis or unguium tolerant to terbinafine treatment prompted us to screen the terbinafine resistance of all Trichophyton clinical isolates from the laboratory of the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois collected over a 3-year period and to identify their mechanism of resistance. Among 2,056 tested isolates, 17 (≈1%) showed reduced terbinafine susceptibility, and all of these were found to harbor SQLE gene alleles with different single point mutations, leading to single amino acid substitutions at one of four positions (Leu(393), Phe(397), Phe(415), and His(440)) of the SQLE protein...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to examine the accuracy of visual diagnosis of tinea pedis (Athlete's foot) and tinea unguium (fungal nail infection), as well as to provide information on skin abnormalities that could help identify these diseases in aged care facilities (long-term care facilities (LTCFs) and nursing homes). METHOD: A multicentre, cross-sectional observational study was conducted in a LTCF and two nursing homes. A dermatologist observed the skin abnormalities in the participants' interdigital and plantar areas, to screen for tinea pedis, and in the participants' toenails, to screen for tinea unguium...

Gyrate erythema, which also is known as erythemaannulare centrifugum (EAC), is a reactive dermatitisthat is thought to occur in response to an underlyingtrigger. The superficial form is characterized bythe typical, centrifugally-expanding, annular,erythematous patches or plaques with a distincttrailing scale. The deep form also is a centrifugallyexpanding,erythematous plaque but with induratedborders and absence of scale. These cutaneousfindings are thought to be reactive, most often inresponse to infections or drugs and, less likely, tounderlying malignant conditions...

According to epidemiological, clinical and mycological criteria, it has long been admitted that the Trichophyton mentagrophytes species includes two varieties: a zoophilic variety (var. mentagrophytes) and an anthropophilic variety (var. interdigitale) that involve the upper and the lower part of the body, respectively. The further application of molecular techniques to the characterization of dermatophyte strains showed that this classification is unreliable. The aim of our study was to assess the usefulness of PCR-RFLP (restriction fragment length polymorphism) and sequencing in the characterization of T...

Infections caused by Trichophyton rubrum are very common in dermatological disease. It most often appears as superficial cutaneous mycosis, such as tinea manuum, tinea pedis, and tinea corporis. However, deep infection caused by T. rubrum was rarely reported. We describe a case of mixed type of deep infection caused by T. rubrum in a 45-year-old man with no significant immunodeficiency. This patient had a history of onychomycosis on the toenails without regular treatment for nearly 6 years. And, he had erythema, papule, and nodules on the submandibular area, neck, and chest for almost 1 year...
