Tinea Unguium on my Nails?

Tinea Unguium is an infection of the nail plate caused by Dermatophyte fungi . The prevalence in advanced countries is calculated as a minimum in 10% of the population . The incidence increases in all countries with the age of the population and therefore an increase in the number of cases is predicted in association with the future aging of society.

Patients with Tinea Unguium are a potential risk in transmitting the infection to themselves, as well as to other people. Tinea unguium in particular, is considered as a prophet of diabetic foot syndrome . Thus, Tinea Unguium does not only cause problems with the appearance of a nail, but can also affect the quality of life of patients. Therefore, it should be actively treated as much as possible.

Since many other diseases have symptoms similar to Tinea Unguium , differentiation is not easy , and a definitive diagnosis by mycological examination is necessary before the start of a treatment .

Dermatophytes are classified into three genera: Trichophyton (T), Microsporum (M) and Epidermophyton (E). T. rubrum represents is the main cause of Tinea Unguium, followed by T. mentagrophytes.

Diagnostic tests for Tinea Unguium include direct microscopy with potassium hydroxide (KOH), fungal culture, PAS staining (periodic acid-Schiff), fluorescent staining, confocal microscopy and molecular biological methods such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR).

Although direct microscopy with KOH and fungal culture have been the “Gold Standard” for the diagnosis of Tinea Unguium, these tests are sometimes a burden in clinical adjustment, because direct microscopy requires an important experience for the identification of the elements fungal, and dissolution of nail samples require a considerable amount of time. The culture takes between 2 and 3 weeks to obtain results, but the detection rate is lower than that of direct microscopy. Therefore, it can be an important competitive advantage, the existence of an easy and fast test to diagnose Tinea Unguium with accuracy.
