Study of dermatophytoses in Lanzarote (1995-199)

Study of dermatophytoses in Lanzarote (1995-199)

Revista Iberoamericana de Micologia 19(3): 165-168

We report on the incidence of dermatophytes isolated in Lanzarote island from June-95 to December-99. We gathered 76 samples. Tinea corporis was the most frequent (40.79%) condition, and after this, tinea pedis (26.31%). Trichophyton rubrum was the commonest agent isolated involving 52.63% of patients. We compare our results with other canarian studies, and with clinical patterns described in other spanish studies published in the 1990's. From these comparations we can deduce: a) The distribution of clinical pictures is not homogeneous among the papers, b) tinea corporis etiology is heterogeneous among the series and c) tinea pedis etiology is homogeneous in most of studies. We believe that the comparison by clinical forms avoids any bias due to distribution of clinical forms.
