Epidermophyton

 [ep´ĭ-der-mof´ĭ-ton]
a genus of fungi. E. flocco´sum attacks both skin and nails but not hair, and is one of the causative organisms of tinea cruris, tinea pedis, and onychomycosis.

Epidermophyton

(ep'i-dĕr-mof'i-ton, -dĕr-mō-fī'ton),
A genus of fungi, separated by Sabouraud from Trichophyton on the basis that it never invades the hair follicles, whose macroconidia are clavate and smooth walled. The only species, Epidermophyton floccosum, is an anthropophilic species that is a common cause of tinea pedis and tinea cruris.
[epidermis + G. phyton, plant]

Ep·i·der·mo·phy·ton

(ep'i-dĕr-mof'i-ton, -dĕr-mō-fī'ton)
A genus of fungi wih macroconidia that are clavate and smooth-walled. The only species, E. floccosum, is a common cause of tinea pedis and tinea cruris.
[epidermis + G. phyton, plant]

Although tinea unguium can be caused by dermatophytes of the genera Trichophyton, Epidermophyton and Microsporum, only Trichophyton spp.
[2] Dermatophytosis is caused by a group of closely related keratophilic fungi, in the genera of Trichophyton, Microsporum, and Epidermophyton capable of invading keratinized tissues of skin and its appendages.

The etiological agents of the dermatophytosis can be categorized into one of the three genera: Microsporum, Epidermophyton and Trichophyton and about 20-25% of the world human population is affected with dermatophytosis (Havlickova et al., 2008).
mentagrophytes is one of the species of dermatophytes that requires methionine for its growth, so that many researchers have used this specific nutrition for determining Trichophyton species.16 Investigations indicated that methionine has no effect on Epidermophyton floccosum and its effect on M.
The three dermatophytes used for screening were Trichophyton rubrum (MTCC code: 7859), Microsporum gypseum (MTCC code: 4524), and Epidermophyton floccosum (MTCC code: 7880).
Other promising activity described by our group [14] was linalool-rich essential oil of Lippia alba against two dermatophytes Trichophyton rubrum and Epidermophyton floccosum [12-21].
In this work, we used four aggressive clinical isolates of Candida albicans, Aspergillus fumigatus, Epidermophyton floccosum, and Mucor pusillus species.
Although species of Epidermophyton, Microsporum, and Trichophyton are the major cause of the mycosis [5, 7], an infection of skin and its appendage by non-dermatophyte molds and yeasts has been increasing [8-12].
This includes reports of infection with dermatophytes such as Trichophyton and Epidermophyton. Some patients may be sensitized to Malassezia yeast, the most common fungi on healthy human skin.
