Dermatomycoses are infections of the skin, hair and nails, which are caused in most cases by dermatophytes, and in rarer cases by yeasts and molds.
Dermatophytes are divided into anthropophilic, zoophilic and geophilic species, according to their transmission route and main occurrence. Anthropophilic dermatophytes prefer human subjects as the primary host, therefore transmission occurs particularly frequently. Zoophilic dermatophytes are transmitted by close contact particularly with pets. They often cause strong inflammatory reactions. Geophilic dermatophytes cause disease less frequently. Contact with e.g. Nannizzia gypseum can lead to infections on the hands and arms in gardeners or farm workers. Molds and yeasts often cause opportunistic infections. They benefit from damage to the skin or nail caused by an existing dermatophyte infection.
