Keratinophilic fungi associated with human hair in Yemen

Keratinophilic fungi associated with human hair in Yemen

Cryptogamie Mycologie 16(2): 129-133

28 species and 2 species varieties belonging to 13 genera were collected from 50 human hair samples collected from Yemen. The most common genera were Aphanoascus, Aspergillus and Chrysosporium. Several keratinophilic fungi were recovered, but with variable counts and frequency such as Aphanoascus fulvescens (= Chrysosporium keratinophilum), Aphanoascus species (= C. tropicum), A. terreus (= C. indicum), Chrysosporium carmichaelii, C. Lucknowense, C. asperatum, C. pruinosum, C. xerophilum, Arthroderma cuniculi (= Chrysosporium anamorph of Arthroderma cuniculi), A. lenticulare (=Trichophyton terrestre), A. ciferii (= C. georgii), Apinisia queenslandica (= C. quessnslandicum) and Microsporum gypseum. Also several other saprophytic and cycloheximide resistant fungi were isolated.
