Treatment of paracoccidioidomycosis, candidiasis, chromomycosis, lobomycosis, and mycetoma with ketoconazole.
Int J Dermatol. 1980 Sep; 19(7):405-8.IJ

Abstract

The authors present the use of ketoconazole in 27 cases of paracoccidioidomycosis, eight of mycetoma, seven of chromomycosis, four of systemic candidiasis and one of lobomycosis. The drug was administered orally in a dosage of 200 to 400 mg per day within a period of up to 90 days. The results of the treatment for paracoccidioidomycosis were of cicatrization of the cutaneous lesions in three to four weeks in 24 patients and in two, from six to seven weeks. Out of 27 patients, 14 presented pulmonary lesions. The evolution within a 90-day period showed radiological cure in one case, improvement in seven, and unaltered picture in five patients. In one, there was no further control. In the three out of four cases of candidiasis there was clinical and mycological cure and in one case marked improvement. In seven cases of chromomycosis there was marked improvement in two, moderate in four, and slight in one case. There was slight improvement in one case of lobomycosis, and in eight cases of mycetoma moderate improvement in three, slight in three and none in two, but the mycological examinations were still positive. The drug tolerance was excellent.
