Climatic conditions of Balaghat (sub-tropical zone, south-east of M. P. , Bharat) heavy rained-1440mm, high-tempretured 30°C-45°C are favorable for fungal growth and infection.

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.
