RICHINI-PEREIRA, Virgínia Bodelão; CAMARGO, Rosângela Maria Pires de; BAGAGLI, Eduardo  y  MARQUES, Silvio Alencar. White piedra: molecular identification of Trichosporon inkin in members of the same family. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2012, vol.45, n.3, pp.402-404. ISSN 0037-8682.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0037-86822012000300025.

INTRODUCTION: White piedra is a superficial mycosis caused by the genus Trichosporon and characterized by nodules on hair shaft. METHODS: The authors report a family referred to as pediculosis. Mycological culture on Mycosel® plus molecular identification was performed to precisely identify the etiology. RESULTS: A Trichosporon spp. infection was revealed. The molecular procedure identified the agent as Trichosporon inkin. CONCLUSIONS: White piedra and infection caused by T. inkin are rarely reported in Southern Brazil. The molecular tools are essentials on identifying the Trichosporon species.
