Dermoscopy is a method of growing significance in the diagnoses of dermatological pigmented skin diseases. However, in my case, mycology culture was negative and successful treatment was given on the basis of trichoscopy and wood lamp examination. I hereby describe a young boy with tinea capitis, multiple "comma hairs" and "zigzag hair" and a subtle additional feature "Morse code-like hair" when intensification was applied. Dermatoscopic aspects found skin Type 2 in a child of as a distinctive dermoscopic finding...

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...

Superficial fungal infections are among the most commonly managed skin problems by general practitioners. Although evidence shows combination antifungal/corticosteroid topicals are more expensive and less effective than single-agent antifungals, practitioners continue to prescribe combination agents. We examined current prescription trends of 2 combination antifungal/corticosteroid medications, Lotrisone and Mycolog-II.

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...

African histoplasmosis is defined as the fungal infection caused by Histoplasma capsulatum var. duboisii (Hcd). Studies focused on distinguishing Hcd and H. capsulatum var. capsulatum (Hcc), which coexist in Africa, are scarce or outdated, and African strains are continuously underrepresented. In this work, 13 cases of African patients with histoplasmosis diagnosed in the Spanish Mycology Reference Laboratory have been reviewed showing that 77% had disseminated disease and AIDS as underlying disease although Hcd infection has been classically considered a rare presentation in AIDS patients...

The human body is home to a complex and diverse microbial ecosystem that plays a central role in host health. This includes a diversity of fungal species that is collectively referred to as our 'mycobiome'. Although research into the mycobiome is still in its infancy, its potential role in human disease is increasingly recognised. Here we review the existing literature available on the human mycobiota with an emphasis on the gut mycobiome, including how fungi interact with the human host and other microbes...

Is non-response to maintenance treatment for recurrent vulvovaginal candidosis (RCVV) related to the impaired glucose metabolism? In the ReCiDiF trial, women with RCVV were given a degressive regimen with fluconazole according to their clinical, microscopic and mycologic response. Data obtained from optimal, suboptimal and non-reponding patients were used for secondary analysis of medical history, physical status and family history for potential glucose impairment. Results were presented in means and percentages...

Objectives Real-time PCR provides quantitative information, recorded as the cycle threshold (Ct) value, about the number of organisms detected in a diagnostic sample. The Ct value correlates with the number of copies of the target organism in an inversely proportional and exponential relationship. The aim of the study was to determine whether Ct values could be used to distinguish between culture-positive and culture-negative samples. Methods This was a retrospective analysis of Ct values from dermatophyte PCR results in cats with suspicious skin lesions or suspected exposure to dermatophytosis...

BACKGROUND: Infections due to Candida species are major causes of morbidity and mortality in humans, causing a diverse spectrum of clinical disease ranging from superficial and mucosal infections to invasive disease. Several authors have demonstrated that mortality is closely linked to both timing of therapy and/or source control. The rapid identification of pathogenic species is helpful to start timely and effective antifungal therapy. The aim of this study was to assess the performance of the matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) system for the correct and rapid identification of yeast isolates causing bloodstream infection...

Fungi include a vast group of eukaryotic organisms able to colonise different natural, anthropised and extreme environments, including marine areas contaminated by metals. The present study aims to give a first multidisciplinary characterisation of marine bottom sediments contaminated by metals (Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Ni, and Zn), originating in the water leakage from an abandoned Fe-Cu sulphide mine (Libiola, north-western Italy), and evaluate how the chemical and physical parameters of water and sediments may affect the benthic fungal communities...

The fungi of the genus Fusarium cause Fusarium head blight (FHB), a devastating disease that reduces grain yield and quality. They also produce mycotoxins which may pose a serious threat to human and animal health. This study investigated the effects of NPK fertilisation, foliar application of Cu, Zn, and Mn, applied separately and in combination, and of the Nano-Gro® organic growth stimulator on the occurrence of FHB in cultivar Dańkowskie Diament rye based on the mycological analysis of kernels and on the concentrations of Fusarium mycotoxins in grain...
