Fungal infection, also known as mycosis, is disease caused by fungi.[1] Dermatophytosis is a group fungal infections of the skin, caused by dermatophytes; species of Trichophyton, Microsporum, and Epidermophyton.[2][3][4] These fungi characteristically affect the outer outer layer of skin, hair shaft and the nail.[1] Non-dermatophyte superficial dermatomycoses includes pityriasis versicolor and tinea nigra.[1]
