Abstract

LOPES, Jorge O. et al. A ten-year survey of onychomycosis in the Central Region of the Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. Rev. Inst. Med. trop. S. Paulo [online]. 1999, vol.41, n.3, pp. 147-149. ISSN 0036-4665.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0036-46651999000300002.

Onychomycosis is a common infection of the nail plate caused by fungal microrganisms, and represents approximately 50% of nails disorders and 30% of all superficial mycotic infections. We present a study of the frequency, epidemiology and clinical aspects of onychomycosis in the central region of Rio Grande do Sul during the period 1988-1997.

Keywords : Onychomycosis; Frequency; Epidemiology; Clinical aspects.
