12 Possible Causes for KOH Preparation showing Fungal Hyphae, Microsporum, Onychomycosis

  • Tinea Pedis

    Microsporum duboisii Microsporum equinum Microsporum ferrugineum Microsporum fulvum Microsporum gallinae Microsporum gypseum Microsporum langeronii Microsporum nanum Microsporum[en.wikipedia.org] At the end of this time, the tinea pedis had resolved and the onychomycosis improved significantly after four cycles were completed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A potassium hydroxide (KOH) preparation of the scrapings directly from a papule showed fungal hyphae, and culture yielded Trichophyton mentagrophytes.[karger.com]

  • Tinea Corporis

    Microsporum canis is a communicable pathogen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Onychomycosis is rarely caused by M gypseum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] preparation , possibly with fungal stain, showing segmented hyphae Confirmatory test : fungal culture Wood's light : yellow-green fluorescence of Microsporum species Treatment[amboss.com]

  • Tinea Capitis

    Tinea capitis caused by Microsporum audouinii is reported herein from two Brazilian schoolchildren, which are brothers.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The types of Onychomycosis will present differently.[medthical.com] preparation, possibly with fungal stain, showing segmented hyphae Confirmatory test : fungal culture Wood's light : yellow-green fluorescence of Microsporum species Treatment[amboss.com]

  • Tinea Cruris

    Microsporum canis was the main etiologic agent followed by Trichophyton violaceum, T. mentagrophytes, T. rubrum and Epidermophyton floccosum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Recurrence is common because fungi may repeatedly infect susceptible people or people with Onychomycosis or Tinea Pedis, which can serve as a dermatophyte reservoir.[univadis.co.uk] preparation, possibly with fungal stain, showing segmented hyphae Confirmatory test : fungal culture Wood's light : yellow-green fluorescence of Microsporum species Treatment[amboss.com]

  • Tinea barbae and Tinea capitis

    […] audouinii Tinea due to Microsporum canis Tinea due to Microsporum distortum Tinea due to Microsporum equinum Tinea due to Microsporum ferrugineum Tinea due to Microsporum[healthprovidersdata.com] The types of Onychomycosis will present differently.[medthical.com] preparation , possibly with fungal stain, showing segmented hyphae Confirmatory test : fungal culture Wood's light : yellow-green fluorescence of Microsporum species Treatment[amboss.com]

  • Onychomycosis

    Microsporum gypseum is a geophilic dermatophyte that colonises keratinous substances in the soil. Fur-bearing animals carry this dermatophyte but are rarely infected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is divided into five subtypes including candidal onychomycosis, distal lateral subungual onychomycosis (DLSO), endonyx onychomycosis (EO), proximal subungual onychomycosis[symptoma.com] Figure 1: Microscopic examination of potassium hydroxide preparation of subungual debris of onychomycosis showing fungal hyphae ( 10) Click here to view Figure 2: Microscopic[ijdpdd.com]

  • Tinea Imbricata

    (Dorland, 27th ed) Microsporum A mitosporic Oxygenales fungal genus causing various diseases of the skin and hair.[bioportfolio.com] Seven different clinical patterns of infection were distinguished: concentric, lamellar, lichenified , plaque-like, annular, palmar/plantar, onychomycosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A KOH preparation made from the lesion showed fungal hyphae and the culture for bacterial growth showed growth of Staphylococcus.[ijdvl.com]

  • Tinea Versicolor

    […] small, round, elevated patches, scaling of the scalp, and dry and brittle hair. tinea cor poris a fungal infection of the glabrous (smooth) skin, usually due to species of Microsporum[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Itraconazole pulse therapy for onychomycosis and dermatomycoses: an overview. J Am Acad Dermatol. 1997;37969- 974 Google Scholar Crossref 7.[doi.org] In 1853, Robin named the infecting yeast Microsporum furfur. The name was altered to Malassezia furfur in Baillon’s text in 1889.[austincc.edu]

  • Tinea Capitis Profunda

    Thus, some atypical and unusual variations of tinea capitis due to Microsporum (M.) species are presented regarding the clinical pattern.[aspergillus.org.uk] “Endonyx” onychomycosis: a new modality of nail invasion by dermatophytes . Acta Derm Venereol 79 : 52 – 53 . 55.[asmscience.org] A KOH preparation made from the lesion showed fungal hyphae and the culture for bacterial growth showed growth of Staphylococcus.[indianpediatrics.net]

  • Microsporum Tinea

    A mycological culture was positive for Microsporum gypseum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When is onychomycosis onychomycosis? A cross-sectional study of fungi in normal-appearing nails. Br J Dermatol. 2015 ;172: 380 - 383. Google Scholar Crossref Medline ISI[journals.sagepub.com] Physical exam shows scaly patches with alopecia and black dots. Potassium hydroxide (KOH) preparation shows fungal hyphae around hair follicles.[medbullets.com]
