Abstract

ARAUJO, Guilherme de Medeiros Lins de et al. Superficial mycoses in Paraíba: a comparative analysis and bibliographical revision. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2010, vol.85, n.6, pp. 943-946. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962010000600031.

A survey of the incidence of clinically diagnosed cases of superficial mycosis was carried out using individual report cards in four Family Health units in Patos-PB, in 2007. We had a sample of 197 positive records with Pityriasis and Tinea as the most incident mycoses. There was a higher prevalence among female patients who were between 11 - 20 years of age. A high number of non-identified infections was found: 46,19%. The identification of the agents of such non-identified infections is not possible as they are not infections of compulsory notification.

Keywords : Incidence; Mycoses; Pityriasis; Tinea.
