Deep Dermatophytosis Caused by Zoophilic Strain of Trichophyton interdigitale with Successful Treatment of Itraconazole.
Mycopathologia. 2017 Aug; 182(7-8):715-720.M

Abstract

We report a 66-year-old female patient with deep dermatophytosis caused by zoophilic strain of Trichophyton interdigitale, a rare granulomatous presentation of Trichophyton species infection in patients with underlying systemic diseases, and she was successfully cured by itraconazole. Since the identification of Trichophyton mentagrophytes complex had been misused for years, a brief discussion of molecular diagnosis and taxonomy of T. mentagrophytes complex is given. The pathogenesis and comparison with cases reported in the literature are also discussed.
