Description

Superficial fungal infections are easily managed once the proper diagnosis is made. However, misdiagnosis is not uncommon, and many standard approaches to treatment popular just a few years ago are now out of date or in need of refinement. Through nine illustrative cases, the authors describe pitfalls in diagnosis and treatment of common fungal infections involving the skin, hair, and nails.
