Cutaneous Fungal Infection

Fungal infections can present clinically in three general manners. Cutaneous infections can include dermatophyte infections as well as more superficial manifestations seen in pityriasis versicolor.

Subcutaneous infections, such as sporotrichosis, often result from traumatic inoculation of the responsible organism into the skin.

Systemic mycoses usually follow inhalation and are subsequent to primary pulmonary infections. Alternatively, systemic fungal infections can occur in immunocompromised hosts from normal flora.
