Mycotic infections in children in Saudi Arabia
PV Venugopal, TV. Venugopal
January-March 1993, 38(1):3-7
ABSTRACT: Five hundred and forth six clinically diagnosed cases of mycotic infections in children were investigated. Direct microscopic examination revealed the presence of fungi in 335 cases and the causal agent was isolated in 329 cases. Tinea capitis accounted for 70.4 percent of the infection followed by tinea versicolor (10.1 percent), diaper dermatitis (6 percent), tinea corporis (5.1 percent) otomycosis (3.9 percent), onychomycosis (3.3 percent), and tinea cruris (1.2 percent). Microsporum canis was the commonest etiological agent responsible for 62.3 percent of paediatric mycotic infections. Malassezia furfur and Trichophyton violaceum were the next commoner agents (10.3 percent and 10 percent) followed by Candida albicans (5.6 percent), Candida spp. (4 percent), M. audouinii and Aspergillus niger 1.8 percent each, A. flavus 1.5 percent, T. simii 0.9 percent, T. rubrum 0.6 percent and lastly T. verrucosum, T. mentagrophytes, Epidermophyton floccosum and Cladosporium spp. were isolated from one case each.

Familial lichen amyloidosis : a case report
AJ Kanwar, S Ghosh, S Dhar, S. Kaur
January-March 1993, 38(1):18-19
ABSTRACT: We report a family where 7 members in three successive generations were affected with lichen amyloidosis. Histopathology of the lesion with special stain for amyloid and polaroscopic examinations confirmed the diagnosis. Primary localized cutaneous amyloidosis is not an uncommon entity. Familial forms are however, very rare 1, and there have been only few case reports in the literature where more than one member of the family was affected 2-4.

In vitro susceptibility testing of dermatophytes with itraconazole by disk diffusion
PV Venugopal, TV. Venugopal
January-March 1993, 38(1):8-12
ABSTRACT: In vitro susceptibility testing of 43 clinical isolates of dermatophytes was carried out against itraconazole by agar dilution and disk diffusion methods. The results were compared with that of ketoconazole. Itraconazole was more active, inhibiting 90 percent of the isolates (MIC 90) at a concentration of 0.5 ug/ml (MIC range 0.01-5 ug/ml) required 1 and 2.5 ug/ml for inhibiting 50 and 90 percent of the isolates. The MIC values and the sizes of zones of inhibition correlated well for both the drugs. Regression analysis was used to measure the degree of correlation between the MIC values and matched averaged zones of inhibition and the correlation coefficients for itraconazole and ketoconazole were - 0.4225 (P0.01) and - 0.5886 (P0.001) respectively.
