  1. Randomized single-blind study of efficacy and tolerability of terbinafine in the treatment of tinea capitis.

    Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology 37(2 Pt 1):272 (1997) PMID 9270519

  2. [Treatment of scalp ringworm with oral terbinafine in childhood].

    Anales Espanoles de Pediatria 46(5):487 (1997) PMID 9297404

  3. Tinea capitis due to Trichophyton soudanense mimicking bacterial folliculitis.

    Mykosen 50(2):150 (2007) PMID 17305781

    We report the case of a 36-year-old Senegalese male with non-scarring alopecia of the scalp, including nodules and pustules, diagnosed as tinea capitis caused by Trichophyton soudanense. This dermatophyte is endemic in Central Africa and is becoming more frequent in Europe because of immigration. It...
  4. Tinea capitis due to Microsporum gypseum.

    European Journal of Dermatology 12(4):367 (2002) PMID 12095884

  5. Thyroid cancer following scalp irradiation.

    Radiology 123(3):741 (1977) PMID 870944

    A sixfole increase in the risk of thyroid cancer was observed among 10,902 persons irradiated for scalp tinea in childhood as compared to two matched control groups. The dosimetry studies demonstrated that the original mean dose given to the thyroid was less than 9 rads, yielding a risk of 6.3/10(6)...
  6. [Growth of gray hairs after roentgen therapy of dermatomycoses of the scalp].

    Vestnik dermatologii i venerologii 37:65 (1963) PMID 13979303

  7. Lupus-erythematosus-like eruption induced by Trichophyton mentagrophytes infection.

    Dermatology 206(4):303 (2003) PMID 12771470

    'New pets' are usually the vectors of TM, especially familiar rodents like the degu of Chile (also named octodon). In our 2 cases, lupus-like rashes began before the onset of griseofulvin treatment, suggesting a pathogenic role of the dermatophyte. A wide variety of lesions named 'mycides' was descr...
  8. [Bulky superinfected tinea capitis of the scalp. Treatment by surgical resection and reconstruction by cutaneous expansion].

    Archives de Pédiatrie 5(9):992 (1998) PMID 9789631

    We present an unusual case which required a surgical treatment. CASE REPORT: A bulky infected kerion ignored for several weeks extended to a large part of the scalp of a 4-year-old girl. Antibiotics and antifungal agents were ineffective so that a total resection was necessary. The loss of substance...
  9. Fungus invasion of human hair tissue in tinea capitis caused by Microsporum canis: light and electron microscopic study.

    Archives of Dermatological Research 281(4):238 (1989) PMID 2774655

    We reported a morphological change of Trichophyton violaceum in hair tissue in black dot ringworm. To investigate the morphology of Microsporum canis in human hais tissue, three cases of tinea capitis by M. canis were examined by both light and electron microscopy. The fungal elements, which were lo...
