Superficial fungal infections. Errors to avoid in diagnosis and treatment.

Academic Article


  • Superficial fungal infections are easily managed once the proper diagnosis is made.

Through nine illustrative cases, the authors describe pitfalls in diagnosis and treatment of common fungal infections involving the skin, hair, and nails.
