Resumen

Desde el año 1951 hasta el mes de julio de 1964, hemos tenido la oportunidad de estudiar 29 casos de dermatofítias cutáneas producidas por elM. gypseum entre un total de 569 pacientes en los que el diagnóstico de micosis cutánea fué confirmado por los cultivos. Las lesiones presentaban clinicamente el aspecto de herpes circinados tricofiticos, acompañadas en ocasiones de signos inflamatorios, con foliculitis o cubiertas de costras impetigoides, llegando en un caso a tomar el aspecto de un querión de Celsi.

Realizamos cultivos con las cepas que conservabamos en el laboratorio procedentes de los enfermos, en medio de tierra esteril con fragmentos de pelos de caballo, mezclandolas con otras de la misma especie procedentes de cultivos obtenidos a partir de una sola ascospora, pudimos comprobar que la forma perfecta de las cepas patógenas estudiadas correspondian a laNannizzia incurvata (Stockdale, 1961).

Summary

Since the year 1951 until July 1964, we could obtain 29 strains ofM. gypseum among 569 Dermatophytes isolated of cutaneous mycoses from the patients in our Dermatological Clinic in Santiago de Compostela (La Coruña).

Clinically the lesions presented the form of patches of “Herpès circiné trichophytique” sometimes accompanied by inflammatory changes, with follicular pustules or impetiginous crusts, and in one case, a Kerion-like lesion.

Attempts were made to cross-mate the isolated strains in soil media with added horse hairs, and the single ascospore isolates of oneM. gypseum cultured from a soil sample. All the strains form cleisthotecia resembling those ofNannizzia incurvata (Stockdale, 1961).
