Abstract

To study the pattern of clinical manifestation in onychomycoses patients and to identify the various dermatophytic, non dermatophytic mould and yeasts implicated in Onychomycoses. The burden of Onychomycoses in the society, causing morbidity cannot be ignored. Although in a developing country like ours where there are more immediate and life threatening disease to combat, it is important to note that a great majority of Onychomycoses sufferers are unseen or hidden patients, and if they are to report to a dermatologist the actual number would be much higher. It is important to recognize, identify and confirm Onychomycoses due to non dermatophyte filamentous fungi as they may not be responsive to even newer antifungal agents.
