Mycoses are classified as superficial, cutaneous, subcutaneous, or systemic (deep) infections depending on the type and degree of tissue involvement and the host response to the pathogen. When classified according to the site of infection, fungal infections are designated as Missing: profundas ‎| ‎Must include: ‎profundas. This study is designed to present our experience of these mycoses Afectación cutánea en las micosis profundas: una revisión de la literatura. [Influence of the diagnosis and treatment guidelines for mycosis profunda (deep mycosis) in the field of emergency and critical care medicine--the influences of.

Linear scleroderma generally first appears in young children.


Zygomycosis Zygomycosis due to Rhizopus, Rhizomucor, Absidia, Mucor species, or other members of the class of Zygomycetes, also causes invasive sinopulmonary infections. An especially life-threatening form of zygomycosis also known as mucormycosisis known as mycosis profundas rhinocerebral syndrome, which occurs in diabetics with ketoacidosis.

In addition to diabetic ketoacidosis, neutropenia and corticosteroids are other major risk factors for zygomycosis. Aspergillus spp and the Zygomycetes have a strong propensity for invading blood vessels. Defective cellular immunity, especially that associated with the mycosis profundas immune deficiency syndrome, is the most common risk factor for developing cryptococcosis.

Phaeohyphomycosis Phaeohyphomycosis is an infection by brown to black pigmented fungi of mycosis profundas cutaneous, superficial, and deep tissues, especially brain.

These infections are uncommon, life-threatening, and occur in various immunocompromised states. Hyalohyphomycosis Hyalohyphomycosis mycosis profundas an opportunistic fungal infection caused by any of a variety of normally saprophytic fungi with hyaline hyphal elements.

For example, Fusarium spp. Basic Concepts of Environmental Epidemiology The epidemiology of dimorphic primary pathogens may mycosis profundas contrasted with that of the opportunistic fungal pathogens.

The primary pathogens have mycosis profundas relatively well-defined geographic range of endemic infection in immunocompromised hosts.

Superficial Mycoses: Dermatophytosis

The differential diagnosis of onychomycosis includes psoriasis, lichen planus, chronic nail injury, and certain genodermatoses. Kerion An inflammatory form of tinea capitis which occurs as a result of advanced disease coupled with an exaggerated mycosis profundas response.

  • Dermatophytosis
  • General Concepts

Lesions present as indurated boggy plaques containing perifollicular abscesses associated with localized mycosis profundas. Posterior cervical and auricular lymphadenopathy and mycosis profundas systemic illness can occur in conjunction with this infection.

Majocchi granuloma Deep variant of tinea corporis where there is follicular involvement.

Morphea - Wikipedia

Clinically presents as boggy, indurated papules and plaques that may drain purulent material. The lesions are characterized histologically by a suppurative granulomatous mycosis profundas.

Tinea profunda This is a variant of tinea corporis mycosis profundas with an excessive inflammatory response which can have a granulomatous or verrucous appearance. How should I identify the organism? What laboratory studies should you order and what should you expect to find?

Superficial Mycoses: Dermatophytosis

Rapid in-office testing can be done by scraping the skin or mycosis profundas a nail or mycosis profundas sample. Potassium hydroxide KOH will show hyphae interspersed among the epithelial cells, or within or on the hair shaft.

Trichophyton tonsurans, the most common agent of tinea capitis, can be seen as solidly packed arthrospores within the broken hair shafts scraped from the plugged black dots of the scalp.


Fungal spores may be viewed directly on hair shafts. This mycosis profundas the most effective, but also the most time-consuming, way to determine if ringworm is on a pet. In this test, the veterinarian collects hairs from the pet, or else collects fungal spores from the pet's hair mycosis profundas a toothbrush, or other instrument, and inoculates fungal media for culture.

These cultures can be brushed with transparent tape and then read by the veterinarian using a microscope, or can be sent to a pathological lab. The three common types of fungi which commonly cause pet ringworm can be identified by their characteristic spores.
