Abstract

Superficial fungal infections have become a significant health problem affecting all age groups. Skin infections due to Dermatophytes are caused by a group of closely related keratophilic fungi, capable of invading the keratinized tissues of skin. A total of 128 samples from suspected cases of dermatophytosis were received and processed in the department of microbiology. All the samples were subjected to microscopic examination and culture by standard techniques. Their clinic-demographic profile, KOH and fungal culture details were obtained and Dermatophytes were identified by studying macroscopic and microscopic characteristics of the isolates. Out of total 128 patients, male predominance was noted. 54% of study population belonged to rural area. Maximum numbers of cases were from the age group 21 to 30 years. Majority of patients (72.63%) belong to poor socioeconomic status. Poor hygiene was observed in about 86% cases. Out of 128 samples, 88 (68.75%) had a positive KOH mount and 95 (74.22%) had positive culture results. Out of culture positive samples 72 (75.79%) were Dermatophytes among which most common isolate was T. mentagrophytes (26.31%) followed T. rubrumin (21.05%) and T. tonsurans (16.84%). This study highlights the change in clinical pattern of dermatophytosis and emergence of T. mentagropthyte as a causative agent.
