Tinea Capitis

We are organizing a Mycopathologia special collection on Tinea Capitis. As Prof. Rod Hay wrote in 2017 in Mycopathologia, “Tinea capitis remains a common childhood infection in many parts of the world. . . however, the infection is no longer regarded as a health priority.” The proposed collection will aim to re-focus attention on Tinea capitis by highlighting epidemiology, hospital/regional/national surveys, clinical presentations, unusual cases, images of typical cases, pathogen descriptions, laboratory tools and techniques, dermoscopy (trichoscopy), treatment guidelines, antifungals- clinical, laboratory, pharmacy. We welcome submissions of Review, Mini Review, Original Article, Short Communication, Case Report, Mycopathologia IMAGE, and Mycopathologia GENOME.
