'Dermatophytoses-pathogenesis and beyond' is an attempt to concise and simplify a common and ever troublesome skin disorder faced since antiquity. Dermatophytes are among the most prevalent infections worldwide, especially in tropical countries like India, where it may even reach epidemic proportions. The monograph attempts not only to give a better insight into arguably the commonest skin infection-both in adults and children alike but also addresses the emerging problem of resistance. It concises the mycological evolution, epidemiology, various clinical variants, investigative tools and the ever evolving treatment modalities. The monograph also compares its findings, among various parameters-age,sex,occupation,associated conditions and mycological correlations with clinical sub-types. It also compares its findings with various studies conducted worldwide and attempts at reasoning out the same.
