Epidemiology, diagnosis and management of superficial mycoses: ours three years retrospective analysis
AbstractMycotic infections of the skin, hair and nails are disorder with high prevalence. Dermatophytes are the most frequently etiologic agents followed by yeasts and non-dermatophyte moulds. The geographic distribution is variable because of migration, lifestyle and socio-economics conditions. In this study, based on ours three years retrospective data analysis, we evaluate the epidemiology of etiologic agents, diagnosis and management of superficial mycoses. Our data and our experience suggest the importance of this microbiological diagnosis and the role of the Clinical Microbiologist to assess with Dermatologist and Primary Care Phyisician an appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic plan.
