Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Evaluate the pros and cons of the different methods available to diagnose onychomycosis and recognize the different treatment modalities for onychomycosis including topicals, orals and devices.
- Assess the different options available for the treatment of tinea capitis based upon factors such as infecting organism.
- Distinguish between dermatophyte and non-dermatophyte mold onychomycosis and evaluate the best management options for non-dermatophyte mold onychomycosis.
Superficial mycoses are among the most common dermatologic infections. They comprise mycotic conditions from tinea capitis to tinea pedis, and all of the skin in between. They also include challenging conditions such as onychomycosis. Superficial mycoses are caused by a number of species, including dermatophytes, yeasts, and non-dermatophyte molds. Here, we provide an update on the diagnosis and management of these conditions. This session addresses controversies like non-dermatophyte mold onychomycosis, and information on new treatments and strategies that may improve clinical results. The goal is to provide clinicians with an evidence-based approach to optimal treatment strategies for patient care.
