Topical ketoconazole (2% dermatological cream) for the treatment of superficial dermatomycoses



Topical ketoconazole (2% dermatological cream) for the treatment of superficial dermatomycoses



Chemioterapia 3(3): 188-191



A total of 48 patients with superficial dermatomycoses took part in an open trial to study the efficacy, acceptability and tolerance of topical ketoconazole (2% dermatological cream) applied twice daily. Forty patients (23 women and 17 men) were available for review upon completion of therapy. After 30 days of therapy, 11 patients were cured clinically and mycologically and 5 patients were cured clinically but had positive mycological findings. One of the patients in this group relapsed one month later. After 60 days of treatment, 22 patients were clinically and mycologically cured. Two patients did not respond to treatment. Only 2 patients in this group relapsed one month later.
