21 Possible Causes for Microsporum, Nail Abnormality, Nail Deformity

  • Onychomycosis

    Microsporum gypseum is a geophilic dermatophyte that colonises keratinous substances in the soil. Fur-bearing animals carry this dermatophyte but are rarely infected.[] What Does a Fungal Nail Infection Look Like? Onychomycosis presents as nail abnormality or a progressive degeneration of the nail tissue (dystrophy).[] Onychomycosis is fungal infection of the nail plate, nail bed, or both. The nails typically are deformed and discolored white or yellow.[]

  • Onychia

    Epidermophyton spp. and Microsporum spp. are other organisms that may cause fungal nail infections.[] External links [ edit ] Fungal Nail Infections - explanation covering causes, treatment, and prevention Links to pictures of Nail Diseases (Hardin MD/Univ of Iowa) Nail Abnormalities[] deformity.[]

  • Tinea Pedis

    Microsporum duboisii Microsporum equinum Microsporum ferrugineum Microsporum fulvum Microsporum gallinae Microsporum gypseum Microsporum langeronii Microsporum nanum Microsporum[] […] information on skin abnormalities that could help identify these diseases in aged care facilities (long-term care facilities (LTCFs) and nursing homes).[] In severe cases, the affected nail becomes deformed and the integrity of the nail itself is compromised resulting in crumbling, scaling nails.[]

  • Dystrophic Nail

    […] mentagrophytes causes over 90% of cases. [ 10 ] T. rubrum is responsible for about 70% of the total. [ 10 ] Other organisms in this group include Epidermophyton spp. and Microsporum[] The nail bed has abnormal vascular architecture that can be visualized microscopically. 1 The lines disappear when pressure is applied to the nail plate because the abnormal[] […] region, nail deformations can suggest nail disorders of severe pernio.[]

  • Mycosis

    Superficial fungal infections, also called dermatophytosis, are confined to the skin and are caused by Microsporum, Trichophyton, or Epidermophyton; athlete’s foot, for example[] Cutaneous mycoses extend deeper into the epidermis, and also include invasive hair and nail diseases.[] Onychomycosis (nail mycosis): presents several forms, as detachment of the free edge of the nail, thickening, white patches on the surface or deformation of the nail.[]

  • Subungual Fibroma

    Common Pathogens in Onychomycosis Dermatophytes (80% to 90%) Epidermophyton floccosum Microsporum species Trichophyton interdigitale Trichophyton mentagrophytes Trichophyton[] Variable nail plate abnormalities will lend to different surgical corrections and should be addressed at the time of exostectomy.[] However, if the nail matrix is injured or altered because of trauma or surgery, the nail plate may grow in an abnormal direction.[]

  • Isolated Toenail Dystrophy

    Trichophyton rubrum and Trichophyton mentagrophytes are the most commonly cited pathogens involved in onychomycosis, but other dermatophytes including epidermophyton species and microsporum[] , while abnormalities in the periosteal vessels contribute to clubbing. 2 FIGURE 1 Anatomic structures of the nail.[] Pincer nail deformity is a transverse over-curvature of the nail plate.[]

  • Tinea Corporis

    Microsporum canis is a communicable pathogen.[] Infected nails become thick, pitted, grooved and abnormal in shape and colour. Ringworm of the feet and body are more frequent in men than women.[] Nail ringworm (tinea unguium) Nail ringworm is an infection of the finger or toenail, characterized by a thickened, deformed nail.[]

  • Majocchi's Granuloma

    Microsporum gypseum is a geophilic fungus.[] Researchers who have found an increased incidence of dermatophyte infection posit the hypothesis that morphological abnormalities in psoriatic nails (eg, hyperkeratosis and[] . - Onychomycosis: Fungal infection of the nail. The lesion presents as thickening, discoloration, and deformity of the nails.[]

  • Thumb Deformity - Alopecia - Pigmentation Anomaly Syndrome

    Pathogenesis: Mostly caused by Trichophyton tonsurans (but Trichophyton violeum and Trichophyton sudanese are clinically similar), sometimes Microsporum canis.[] Nail abnormalities are problems with the color, shape, texture, or thickness of the fingernails or toenails.[] nail deformity).[]
