Abstract

There are many occupations that expose people to dermatophytes. Infections from dermatophytes may be transmitted from animal to animal, animal to human, human to human, and human to animal in a cyclic fashion. The most common species of dermatophytes that infect animals and humans, Microsporum and Trichophyton, are discussed here.
