Author(s): K Dinesh and Chitralekha Saikumar*

Abstract

A total of 80 clinically diagnosed cases of dermatophytosis were subjected to mycological study. The Male: Female sex ratio was 51%: 48%. Skin infection was the most predominant followed by nail infection and the least was infection of hair. Trichophyton spp. were the predominant isolates 58.7%, followed by Microsporum spp. 15% and Epidermophyton spp. 2.5%. Trichophyton rubrum was the most common isolate, from skin scrapings of both diabetic and non-diabetic patients. T mentagrophyte was the next common isolate, from skin scrapings of both diabetic and non-diabetic patients. M. gypseum was mostly isolated from skin scrapings of both diabetic and non-diabetic patients. E. fioccosum was the least isolated dermatophyte. T rubrum was mostly isolated from nail clippings of both diabetic and non-diabetic patients.
