Pratima Bisen, Dr. Smt. Shashi Tiwari

Some keratinophilic fungi are a potential pathogen of warm-blooded animals and cause superficial cutaneous infections (dermatophytoses) of keratinized tissues (skin, hair and nails). Climatic conditions of Balaghat (sub-tropical zone, south-east of M.P., Bharat) heavy rained-1440mm, high-tempretured 30C-45C are favorable for fungal growth and infection. In our survey of Balaghat city Specially Moti Talab area 143 patients skin, nail and hair samples are collected from visiting the hospitals, schools and other localities. Out of 143 samples, 105 persons have keratinophilic fungal infections. As per overall human patient sampling, ~73.43 % of the population recorded to be positive for keratinophilic fungi.
