Abstract: A total of 175 cases of dermatophytoses were studied. Out of all the clinical types, Tinea corporis (T. corporis) was found to be the predominant clinical type (24.57%) followed by tinea cruris (T. cruris) (22.28%). Incidence of Tinea barbae (T. barbae) and Tinea imbricata (T. imbricata) was the least (2.85%) and 0.57% respectively. Out of 175 cases of dermatophytoses, 66 (37.71%) cases were positive on microscopic examination, out of which 27 (40.90%) cases were positive by culture also. Out of the 175 cases of dermatophytoses, 109 (62.28%) were engative on microscopic examination, out of which 13 (11.92%) were culture positive. In this study, Trichophyton was the commonest genus of dermatophyte isolated, with Trichophyton rubrum (T. rubrum) being the commonest species (28.12%), followed by Trichophyton mentagrophyte. (T. mentagrophyte) (25.0%) Trichophyton soudanense (T. soundanense), which is a rare species (not reported from any studies) was isolated from cases of T. corporis and T. cruris.
