    Medicine (Baltimore). 2020 Nov 20; 99(47):e23189.Zhao D, Chen B, … Jiao CH
  • This retrospective study assessed the efficacy and safety of 1% topical clotrimazole cream for the treatment of patients with tinea cruris (TC).We included 86 patients with confirmed TC for the presence of fungal hyphae. Of those, 43 patients received 1% topical clotrimazole cream for a total of 4 consecutive weeks, and were assigned to an experimental group. The other 43 patients underwent 1% to…
  • Dermatophytosis caused by Nannizzia nana. [Case Reports]
    J Mycol Med. 2020 Oct 06 [Online ahead of print]Porras-López C, Martínez-Herrera E, … Rodríguez-Cerdeira C
  • In this paper, we reported three distinct cases of tinea, including tenia ungulum, tenia pedis, and tenia cruris caused by the infection of Nannizzia nana in the immunocompetent patients who were also the residents of Guatemala. Dermatophytes were identified phenotypically and genotypically. Thereafter, DNA was extracted from the fungal isolates and a fragment of the ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 region was amp…
  • Superficial fungal infections and patients with Hidradenitis suppurativa - a study under the Danish Blood Donor Study. [Letter]
    Clin Exp Dermatol. 2020 Oct 02 [Online ahead of print]Lindsø Andersen P, Kjaersgaard Andersen R, … Pedersen OB
  • Superficial fungal infections (SFI) are common diseases affecting the skin, hair, nails, and mucosal membranes. They are often caused by dermatophytes and yeasts, e.g. Trichophyton, Candida, and Malassezia1 . Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, inflammatory skin disease of the intertriginous areas associated with minor infections2 , peripheral vascular disease, diabetes, and smoking3 , th…
  • Limited effectiveness of four oral antifungal drugs (fluconazole, griseofulvin, itraconazole and terbinafine) in the current epidemic of altered dermatophytosis in India: results of a randomized pragmatic trial. [Journal Article]
    Br J Dermatol. 2020 Nov; 183(5):840-846.Singh S, Chandra U, … Tilak R
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results show limited effectiveness of all four antifungal drugs. In view of cure rates and the number needed to treat, itraconazole is the most effective drug, followed by fluconazole (daily), terbinafine and then griseofulvin, in chronic and chronic relapsing dermatophytosis in India. What is already known about this topic? Oral antifungal drugs are considered to have a high cure rate in tinea corporis, tinea cruris and tinea faciei. Unprecedented changes have been noticed in the last few years in India in the morphology, course and treatment responsiveness of tinea; however, data about the effectiveness of oral antifungals are lacking. What does this study add? Our results show limited effectiveness of four oral antifungal drugs (fluconazole, griseofulvin, itraconazole and terbinafine) in the current epidemic of altered dermatophytosis in India. Among the four drugs tested, oral itraconazole is the most effective. Linked Comment: Elewski. Br J Dermatol 2020; 183:798-799.
  • Photodynamic therapy treatment of superficial fungal infections: A systematic review. [Review]
    Photodiagnosis Photodyn Ther. 2020 Sep; 31:101774.Shen JJ, Jemec GBE, … Saunte DML
  • CONCLUSIONS: PDT-treatment of superficial mycoses can be efficacious as salvage therapy. In the light of increasing resistance and few licensed treatment alternatives, larger randomized controlled trials investigations and optimization of the PDT-treatment protocol are warranted to evaluate PDT's potential as a future antifungal treatment.
  • StatPearls: Tinea Cruris [BOOK]
    StatPearls. StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Pippin Micah M. MM LSUHSC Shreveport Madden Michael L. ML LSUHSC / Rapides Regional MC BOOK
  • Tinea cruris, also known as jock itch, is an infection involving the genital, pubic, perineal, and perianal skin caused by pathogenic fungi known as dermatophytes.[1][2][3][4][5] These dermatophytes affect keratinized structures such as hair and the epidermis' stratum corneum resulting in a characteristic rash. Intertriginous areas are hospitable environments for fungus with sweating, maceration,…
  • Skin Infections and Outpatient Burn Management: Fungal and Viral Skin Infections. [Journal Article]
    FP Essent. 2020 Feb; 489:16-20.Woolever DR
  • Fungal and viral skin infections are common and typically are managed by family physicians. The fungal skin infections commonly seen in family practice include the various forms of tinea: tinea corporis, tinea gladiatorum, tinea cruris, tinea pedis, tinea capitis, and tinea unguium (eg, onychomycosis). Common viral skin infections include herpes simplex virus infection, herpes zoster, cutaneous a…
  • Primary extramammary Paget's disease: a clinicopathological study of 28 cases. [Journal Article]
    Int J Clin Exp Pathol. 2019; 12(9):3426-3432.Zhao Y, Gong X, … Jin X
  • To analyze the clinical and histopathological manifestations, immunohistochemistry, treatment, and prognostic factors of primary, extramammary Paget's disease (EMPD), we systematically reviewed the clinical presentations, histopathology and follow-up courses of 28 patients with primary EMPD. Clinically, their symptoms and morphology mimicked various types of dermatoses, such as seborrheic dermati…
  • Dermoscopy - a simple and rapid in vivo diagnostic technique for tinea incognito. [Case Reports]
    An Bras Dermatol. 2019 Sep - Oct; 94(5):612-614.Sonthalia S, Ankad BS, … Jha AK
  • Tinea incognito resulting from corticosteroid abuse is becoming very common in the tropics. Its diagnosis is tricky owing to its confusing morphology, as well as practical and technical issues associated with mycological tests. Dermoscopy has now evolved as a novel diagnostic tool for diagnosing tinea incognito in such challenging situations, since the typical hair changes such as Morse-code hair…
  • 2016 Epidemiological Survey of Dermatomycoses in Japan. [Review]
    Med Mycol J. 2019; 60(3):75-82.Shimoyama H, Sei Y
  • We report here the results of the 2016 epidemiological survey of dermatomycosis in Japan. In total, 6,776 cases were analyzed as follows: dermatophytosis, 5,772 cases (85.2%); candidiasis, 757 cases (11.2%); Malassezia infection, 235 cases (3.5%); and other fungal infections, 11 cases (0.2%). In dermatophytosis, tinea pedis was the most frequent (3,314 cases: male, 1,705; female, 1,609), followed…

  • Tinea corporis is a superficial fungal skin infection of the body caused by dermatophytes. Tinea corporis is present worldwide. It is defined explicitly by the location of the lesions that may involve the trunk, neck, arms, and legs. Alternative names exist for dermatophyte infections that affect the other areas of the body. These include the scalp (tinea capitis), the face (tinea faciei), hands …
  • Antifungal resistance in dermatophytes: Recent trends and therapeutic implications. [Review]
    Fungal Genet Biol. 2019 11; 132:103255.Khurana A, Sardana K, Chowdhary A
  • Dermatophytoses or tinea refers to superficial fungal infection of keratinized tissues. Although generally considered easy to treat, recalcitrant infections, presenting as extensive and difficult to treat tinea corporis and cruris, are on the rise in some parts of the world. The situation demands an understanding of the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties of the available antifungals a…
