LOPES, Jorge O. et al. A TEN-YEAR SURVEY OF Tinea pedis IN THE CENTRAL REGION OF THE RIO GRANDE DO SUL, BRAZIL. Rev. Inst. Med. trop. S. Paulo [online]. 1999, vol.41, n.2, pp. 75-77. ISSN 0036-4665.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0036-46651999000200003.

Tinea pedis is the most common type of dermatophytosis, but can mimic many cutaneous diseases and tend to be chronic. We present a study of the frequency, epidemiology and clinical aspects of tinea pedis in the central region of Rio Grande do Sul during the period 1988-1997.

Keywords : Tinea pedis; Frequency; Epidemiology; Clinical aspects.
