Scopulariopsis

Scopulariopsis

(skō'pyū-lar'ē-op'sis),
A genus of filamentous fungi rarely pathogenic for humans; several species have been implicated in onychomycosis, ulcerating granuloma, and other "mycotic" entities. Penicillium-like, it is common in nature and generally a contaminant in laboratory cultures of human tissues.
[Mod. L. scopula, a small broom, + G. opsis, appearance]

From this percentage, 90% corresponds to the toenails, being the main etiological agents the dermatophytes such as: Trichophyton rubrum, yeasts of the genus Candida spp, presenting a higher prevalence in the nails of hands, and also we find non-dermatophytic molds, such as Fusarium spp, Aspergillus spp, Scopulariopsis spp and Acremonium spp, as responsible for 2% to 20% of the isolates in clinical samples of nails, being its interpretation as causal agent of the frequently complicated nail alteration.
