Yeasts cause only 5-10% of onychomycosis; the most common yeast is Candida albicans, and rarely Trichosporon spp. is found. Recently, it has become an important cause of fungemia with a high mortality rate in immunocompromised patients. Superficial infections caused by Trichosporon spp., including piedra and onychomycosis, occur in immunocompetent patients. Herein, we report a case of a fungal nail infection characterized by onycholysis and chromonychia caused by Trichosporon inkin.

Key Words: Onycholysis, Onychomycosis, Chromonychia, Trichosporon, Trichosporon inkin

Established Facts

• Onycholysis has many causes.

Trichosporon spp. is a rare cause of fungal nail infections.

Novel Insights

• We report a case of a fungal nail infection caused by Trichosporon inkin characterized by onycholysis and chromonychia.


Onychomycosis is a fungal infection of the nail. It affects 10% of the population and represents 50% of all onychopathies [1]. It can be caused by dermatophytes, yeasts and non-dermatophyte molds. Dermatophytes are isolated in 90% of cases, and the most common etiological agent is Trichophyton rubrum. 5-10% of these infections are caused by yeasts, especially Candida albicans [2,3].

In the last two decades, Trichosporon spp. has emerged as an important opportunistic pathogen in immunocompromised individuals, especially Trichosporon asahii. This is the most important yeast, after Candida spp., causing systemic infection [4]. It is frequently associated with a high mortality (80%) [5]. Fungemia can occur in 74.7% of cases and disseminated infection in 50.6% [6]. The most common underlying conditions related to invasive trichosporonosis are peritoneal dialysis, solid tumors and hematological malignancies [6].

Case Report

A 62-year-old female resident of Mexico City presented at the Dermatology Clinic with thickening and discoloration of the right first toenail. Examination showed onycholysis of the distal and lateral aspect of the nail and black-greenish discoloration (fig. ). A partial overriding of the second toe over the first toenail could be seen. A previous-year onychomycosis had been diagnosed and treated with terbinafine for 3 months with complete remission, but xantonychia and pachyonychia persisted and were treated only with urea cream for nail avulsion.

Onycholysis of the distal and lateral aspect of the nail.

Two months before, the patient had presented with a traumatic ulcer on the dorsal aspect of the first toenail of the right foot. It healed completely after some days of just protecting the area from further trauma.

The patient also has a 5-year history of a venous and arterial ulcer on her right lower leg. She has received several treatments but has not achieved good compliance, and the ulcer has not healed. She is otherwise healthy.

In the mycological examination of a scraping from the nail plate, the KOH test and Chlorazol Black E stain (Delasco, Council Bluffs, Iowa, USA) revealed blastospores and hyphae (fig. ), and a yeast was isolated on Sabouraud dextrose agar (Bioxon, Mexico). After microscopic examination, it was identified as Trichosporon spp. (fig. ) and later, with mass spectrophotometry (Vitek MS, bioMérieux), as Trichosporon inkin.

Presence of blastospores (↓) and hyphae (↓↓) (KOH, ×40).

The patient was started on itraconazole with a favorable response and only a persisting yellowish discoloration.


Clinical manifestations caused by Trichosporon spp. include superficial skin infections (white piedra) and onychomycosis in immunocompetent patients as well as severe disseminated mycosis in immunocompromised patients.

Trichosporon ovoides is the most common agent isolated in white piedra of hairs and T. inkin in the inguinal area. Trichosporon cutaneum has been reported to be the most common yeast in onychomycosis [5,7,8].

After the first description of onychomycosis related to Trichosporon beigelii in 1984 [9], the pathogenic role of this yeast is still controversial. In our case, although we had a positive KOH and culture and a good response to itraconazole, it is impossible to be sure whether T. inkin was a true pathogenic yeast or a secondary colonizer.

Onycholysis can be caused by trauma originating from a friction, especially in toenails (asymmetric gait toenail unit sign). Also, changes similar to onychomycosis can be observed [10,11]. Onycholysis caused by constant friction could be the predisposing factor that allowed fungal infection. The greenish color of the nail is commonly caused by Pseudomonas, which in this case was not excluded because no bacterial cultures were performed.

In two Mexican papers on 467 and 98 cases of onychomycosis, Trichosporon spp. was found in 35.5 and 18.3% of patients, respectively [2,12]. In Korea, in 1,009 cultures positive for onychomycosis, T. beigelii was isolated in 212 cases (21%) [13]. In 1997, Kai-Man et al. [14] in Hong Kong reported T. beigelii in 11% of onychomycosis cases. In a multicenter study in Argentina, including 2,731 patients with positive culture for onychomycosis, only 8 cases were caused by Trichosporon spp. [15].

Trichosporon is characterized by arthroconidia, blastoconidia, hyphae and pseudohyphae [5,7,16]. Cultures on Sabouraud dextrose agar grow as white-to-beige yeast colonies showing a cerebriform aspect and radial surfaces [5].

Currently, T. beigelii has been replaced by seven species, now recognized as causal agents in human infections: T. asahii, T. inkin, T. mucoides, T. cutaneum, T. ovoides, T. asteroides and T. loubieri [4,5].

Trichosporon spp. has been found to have an in vitro high-resistance profile to amphotericin B and itraconazole, high susceptibility to fluconazole and moderate resistance to 5-flucytosine [17]. It has been suggested that onychomycosis caused by T. beigelii must be treated with systemic antifungals, mainly itraconazole [8].

RACGP – Superficial fungal infections


Tinea is a common fungal infection that can affect the skin, nails and hair. Tinea infection has a variety of clinical manifestations and affects all age groups, ranging from tinea pedis in adults to tinea capitis in pre-pubertal children.


This article provides an updated overview of the common clinical manifestations and practical approaches to the diagnosis and management of tinea infections.

Superficial fungal infections are caused by dermatophytes in the Microsporum, Trichophyton and Epidermophyton genera.1 Dermatophytes live on keratin, which is found in skin, hair and nails. There is evidence that continuing migrations and mass tourism contribute to the changing epidemiological trends.2,3 Tinea infections are named according to the Latin term that designates the anatomic site of infection, such as tinea capitis (scalp), tinea corporis (body), tinea manuum (hand), tinea cruris (groin), tinea pedis (foot) and tinea unguium (nail).

Clinical manifestations

Tinea pedis

Tinea pedis, colloquially known as ‘athlete’s foot’, is the most common dermatophyte infection. Its prevalence increases with age;4 it is rare in children.5 Exposure to occlusive footwear, sweating and communal spaces are predisposing factors of tinea pedis.6 The interdigital subtype is the most common form of tinea pedis, which manifests as maceration or scales between toes (Figure 1). 7 Another subtype is the chronic hyperkeratotic (moccasin-type) tinea pedis, which is characterised by chronic plantar erythema with scaling involving the lateral and plantar surfaces of the foot (Figure 2). The dorsal surface is usually spared in this subtype. A less frequent presentation of tinea pedis is the vesiculobullous or inflammatory form, which may sometimes be difficult to clinically distinguish from pompholyx eczema.8 Recurrent tinea pedis may be due to a reservoir of untreated tinea in the nails.

Figure 2. Moccasin-type or chronic hyperkeratotic tinea pedis: Erythema and hyperkeratosis of the plantar/lateral aspects of the foot; consider oral therapy for these severe cases

Tinea unguium (onychomycosis)

Tinea unguium, also known as onychomycosis, is a dermatophyte infection of the nails. Onychomycosis is very common in the elderly with a prevalence of up to 50% in people aged over 70 years.9 Nearly half of patients with toenail onychomycosis were found to have concomitant fungal skin infections, most commonly tinea pedis.7 The most common clinical subtype is the distal lateral subungual onychomycosis that appears as yellowish or brownish discolouration associated with onycholysis and subungual hyperkeratosis (Figure 3). The other common subtype is the white superficial onychomycosis, which has the appearance of white spots on the nail plate that can involve the entire nail if not treated. Onychomycosis has many mimics (Table 1), so it is important to establish a mycological diagnosis before commencing therapy. Individuals with underlying nail disease are at increased risk of concomitant onychomycosis. Immunocompromised and diabetic hosts are not only at a greater risk of onychomycosis but are also more susceptible to the bacterial complications of onychomycosis, such as cellulitis.

Table 1. Differential diagnosis of onychomycosis33–37
Differential diagnosis Clinical features
Nail psoriasis

  • Shares many common clinical and histopathological features with onychomycosis
  • Fingernails are usually more affected by psoriasis than tinea
  • Nail pitting is the most common sign of nail psoriasis and rare in onychomycosis
  • Nail bed ‘oil drops’: pink discolouration in the nailbed due to nailbed inflammation
  • Other psoriatic skin changes
  • Family history of psoriasis
  • Can coexist with onychomycosis in 20% of people

    with psoriasis
Lichen planus

  • Typically affects several or most nails
  • Other cutaneous features of lichen planus
  • Pterygium unguis: Scarring between nail matrix and proximal nailfold
  • Nail plate thinning and longitudinal ridging
Yellow nail syndrome

  • Association with bronchiectasis, chronic sinusitis and lymphoedema
Traumatic onychodystrophy

  • Usually only single nail affected
  • Distal onycholysis
Alopecia areata

  • Red-spotted lunula
  • Regularly distributed nail pitting
Age-related nail dystrophies

  • Onychauxis and onychoclavus can be clinically identical to onychomycosis
Tinea capitis

Tinea capitis is a dermatophyte infection of the scalp and hair and it predominantly occurs in pre-pubertal children. 10 The three main clinical presentations of tinea capitis are scaly patches with alopecia, alopecia with black dots at the follicular opening and diffuse scalp scaling with subtle hair loss. A severe form of tinea capitis is referred to as ‘kerion’, which is characterised by a tender plaque with pustules and crusting.11 If untreated, kerion may cause permanent scarring and alopecia. Cervical lymphadenopathy is a common associated finding in patients with tinea capitis.12

Tinea corporis and tinea cruris

Tinea corporis, commonly known as ringworm, refers to a dermatophyte infection on the skin of sites other than face, hands, feet or groin. Tinea cruris is also known as ‘jock itch’ and occurs in the groin fold and is more frequent in adult men.13 Tinea corporis most commonly occurs in children and young adults. Tinea corporis (Figure 4) and tinea cruris (Figure 5) classically present as annular plaques with central clearing and leading scale. The lesions may be single or multiple and of varying sizes, which may coalesce. Pustules or vesicles can sometimes occur at the active edge. Although tinea infection is common, it is important to consider many other causes of an annular rash as described in Table 2.

Figure 5. Tinea cruris: Annular plaque over the groin fold


Table 2. Think beyond tinea: Differential diagnosis of tinea corporis (annular rash)32
Differential diagnosis Clinical features
Discoid eczema (nummular)

  • Less likely to have central clearing (but can occur)
  • More confluent scales
Annular psoriasis

  • Silvery scale
  • Nail pitting
  • Family history of psoriasis
Pityriasis rosea

  • Herald patch progressing to generalised rash
Subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus

  • More common in females
  • Photosensitive areas
Erythema annulare centrifugum

  • Trailing scale rather than leading scale in tinea
Tinea incognito

Tinea incognito is a term for a tinea infection that has been misdiagnosed and inappropriately treated with a topical corticosteroid or other immunosuppressive agents. The clinical features may become masked with attenuated scale and erythema, as well as a less well-defined border (Figure 6). The infection may also be exacerbated as the dermatophytes invade the dermis or subcutaneous tissue causing deep-seated folliculitis, also referred to as Majocchi’s granuloma.13

Practical approach to diagnosis

A diagnosis of tinea infection may be suspected on the basis of clinical history and examination. Since many conditions can mimic tinea infections, it is recommended that investigations are performed to confirm the diagnosis. Although minor localised infections may be treated with empirical topical therapy, testing should be performed prior to commencing systemic therapy. Without the diagnostic confirmation, prescribers may not know when to stop the therapy.

In recurrent cases of tinea, it is essential to identify any potential reservoir for dermatophytosis. Toenails are a common reservoir for tinea and can result in recurrent tinea pedis as well as transmission by autoinoculation to other body parts, such as the hand and groin.14,15 As it is common for dermatophytes to concurrently affect more than one body part at the same time, a full skin examination should be performed to determine the extent of involvement and potential reservoir. In addition, animals may also be reservoirs. Microsporum canis is the most common dermatophyte isolate in tinea capitis, with cats and dogs recognised as important natural hosts.16 In these cases, animals should be tested and treated until mycological cure, to prevent reinfection in humans.

Diagnostic tests

Tinea infection can be diagnosed using fungal microscopy and culture, which allows for fungal speciation and viability assessment. Fungal microscopy of skin scrapings and nail clippings is performed on KOH (potassium hydroxide) and can be rapid. Fungal culture can take up to four to six weeks and but has a false-negative rate of at least 30% for nail samples.17 Repeat culture should be performed if there is a high index of clinical suspicion.

Advice on specimen collection
  • Prior topical antifungal therapy may lead to false-negative culture results.
  • Topical corticosteroid cream generally does not affect the isolation of dermatophytes but it can make it difficult to collect sufficient specimen. The cream should be wiped off prior to scraping.
  • Each site needs to be collected in separately labelled containers to allow correct identification of the infective sites.
  • Collect as much specimen as possible to maximise the yield.
  • For skin scrapings:
    • Use a scalpel blade, held at an angle.
    • Always sample from the active leading edge of the lesion. Fungi are rarely identified from the interdigital macerated samples or the centre of the lesion. The moist interdigital areas of the feet are usually colonised with concomitant bacterial isolates, such as beta-haemolytic streptococci, Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.18
  • For nail clippings/scrapings:
    • Use a nail clipper to clip the infected portion of the nail plate.
    • In addition to the nail plate sample, collect as much subungual debris and as far proximally as is painless using a curette or scalpel blade.
  • For a hair specimen:
    • Use forceps or a brush to collect infected hair. Ensure to collect the hair root and scrape the area using a scalpel blade. Infected hairs usually come out easily.
    • For small children, an alternative method is to use a sterile moistened cotton swab, which has been shown to be an equally reliable and atraumatic technique.19

Treatment modalities

The mode of treatment depends on the extent and location of the tinea infection. General tips for the management of tinea infection are listed in Box 1. Systemic therapy with oral terbinafine and azoles is summarised in Table 3.

Box 1. Tips for tinea management20,42

  • Examination of the skin and nails should be performed for all patients with tinea infection to identify the extent of involvement and potential reservoirs for dermatophytes.
  • Topical treatments are usually ineffective against onychomycosis.
  • Most nails still look abnormal after effective therapy because new nails take nine to 12 months to grow.
  • Two simple methods to monitor the effect of onychomycosis therapy: 1) photographic monitoring, 2) marking the nail using a scalpel at the proximal end of the dystrophy. As the nail grows out, if the nail abnormality remains distal to the mark then no further therapy is required. Consider referral to an expert if therapy fails.
  • Topical antifungal shampoos for tinea capitis can reduce the risk of fungal transmission to others but are ineffective in treating the infection.

Recommended monitoring

  • Routine interval blood monitoring may be unnecessary in healthy adults and children without underlying hepatic or haematological conditions

  • Continuous itraconazole: Baseline liver function test (LFT) and regular LFT monitoring every four to six weeks
  • Pulsed itraconazole: none recommended
  • Fluconazole: Baseline LFT and full blood examination; no repeat test required for once weekly therapy

  • Psoriasis and lupus may be exacerbated by terbinafine
  • Contraindicated in severe hepatic disease
  • Dose adjustment required if

    CrCl <50 mL/min

  • Dose adjustment may be required in renal impairment
  • Avoid in severe hepatic disease
  • Fluconazole can cause prolonged QT – correct the risk factors and use with caution
  • Itraconazole is relatively contraindicated in congestive failure
  • Itraconazole is also poorly absorbed when used with proton pump inhibitors
Pregnancy categorisation

  • Itraconazole: Category B3
Breastfeeding compatibility

  • Fluconazole: compatible; may cause diarrhoea in infant

  • Itraconazole: avoid, insufficient data
Topical antifungal therapy

Most cases of tinea corporis, tinea cruris and tinea pedis are amenable to topical therapy. Recommended first-line topical therapy is terbinafine 1% cream once or twice daily for one to two weeks.20

In cases of onychomycosis with contraindication to systemic therapy, nine to 12 months of ciclopirox 8% nail lacquer once daily or amorolfine 5% nail lacquer once daily with debridement of hyperkeratotic nails can be offered but has low mycological cure rates of 29–36%21 and 38%,22 respectively.

Oral antifungal therapy

Oral therapy should be considered in the following scenarios:

  • onychomycosis
  • tinea capitis
  • extensive tinea on the skin
  • failed topical treatment
  • immunocompromised patients.

Recommended first-line oral therapy for terbinafine 250 mg once daily for adults.20 Refer to Table 3 for paediatric dosing. Terbinafine is generally safe for use in healthy patients without the need for interval blood monitoring.23 However, it is contraindicated for patients with severe liver impairment and dose reduction is required for patients with moderate-to-severe chronic kidney disease (CrCl <50 mL/min).20

The duration of oral therapy depends on the site:

  • scalp: four weeks
  • fingernails: six weeks
  • toenails: 12 weeks (longer duration therapy is required because of diminished blood supply in the area, especially in the elderly)
  • other than scalp and nails: two weeks.

A 2017 Cochrane review24 showed that terbinafine is superior to fluconazole and itraconazole for both clinical and mycological cure of onychomycosis (Table 3). There was also no difference in the rates of recurrence and adverse events.

Griseofulvin for six to eight weeks (paediatric dosing: 10 mg/kg up to 500 mg) is first-line therapy for tinea capitis caused by Microsporum infections.20 In contrast, griseofulvin is recommended as third-line therapy for tinea corporis because it is less effective than terbinafine and azoles for this indication.20 Griseofulvin is generally not recommended for onychomycosis as it has a longer treatment duration, higher rate of adverse events and is not more effective than terbinafine and azoles.24 Griseofulvin dosages vary depending on its indications: 500 mg once daily is recommended for tinea capitis, tinea corporis and tinea cruris; 1 g once daily is recommended for tinea pedis and onychomycosis.25

Laser therapy

The cure rates for laser therapy in onychomycosis are significantly lower than those for topical and oral therapies.26,27 Given its limited efficacy and high cost, laser therapy cannot be recommended as first-line treatment for onychomycosis.28

Prevention of recurrence

After therapy for onychomycosis, there may be a recurrence or reinfection rate of up to 25%.29,30 Patients should be advised to address modifiable risk factors for prevention of tinea infection, including avoiding sharing hairbrushes, clothes or shoes; avoiding walking barefoot around public showers and pools; and regularly alternating footwear and changing socks.

Following a cure, topical antifungal therapy (ciclopirox, amorolfine, bifonazole, terbinafine) can be applied weekly as prophylaxis. This method has been shown to significantly lower the recurrence rate in a retrospective study.31 The optimal duration of prophylaxis is unclear and may be indefinite.


Tinea is a common infection in the general community. It is a diagnosis that is frequently missed unless we think of it and test for it. Prompt recognition and management of tinea infection help reduce morbidity and its associated complications, as well as reducing the chance of transmission. The location and severity of tinea infection determine the empirical treatment modality and duration. As there are many mimics of tinea, clinicians should not prescribe oral antifungal therapy without a confirmed diagnosis.

‘Toenails’ poems – Hello Poetry

Not in the way I
Look through these eyes
which water but instead
Of sadness entranced upset
Near to death love
making where though and
Design laugh at their own
Gluttony and ill usage and
away from me i say no not here and
away from itself i hear nothing for you
are here within me but away
Comet and the see to hear blues with
Everything to give but nothing to lose
And the far off sights are much too bright
And inside you hear yourself crying
Not to mtters or mold your soul
With what your parents said to you
Ordered you to be bold and
The aftermath of your own tightened slack
Makes you wonder if growing up was an actual
Choice in the matter of the batter which is
The family foundation were games are played
For keeps and children weep as they keep
Toiling on as adults just for bigger and better things
Come into the waves of a brain malfunctioning
No face for ye’ faith meand nodding to the higher
Ones whose noses are broken and the lips cracked
The spinning brain of hurts doughnuts and Americana
Rip offs selling the flag by the millions to turn a profit
For the moronic billionaires who think no one is watching.
Watching with their hats turned sideways and trying to
Escape old age and grey hair and sagging ball sacks and
Poor english and worser bread, stale with their mother’s
Ghost hovering on the shoulder of their pouting diamond
Drenched wife as if madness grew a larger pair **** within the
Hilarity of connection of concoction of happiness and
Satisfaction and a longing to burn the entire ******* down
Just to rebuild it the way you see and you do see it and the way
You feel it used to be and perhaps, maybe, could be and where
Experimentation is now a center fold for the dock workers and the
Laborers of the world to spit and ******* and cry over in their
Twisted and rusty beds for inside their pea brains and melted
Mouths filled with colgate and beer, they slobber over the excess
And humiliation and celluoid dreams of **** and *** and spreads
That would make any grandmother of 37 weep and Mozart meander
On the veranda, contemplating smooth jazz and the way he would like
Not to be buried with the hat trick hockey nick who swore he saw
You fall in love before and that sobriety was the touch of the Christian
Way of life and ye’ far out and tormented young ones meant nothing
By what they said at the rally and they do believe in the good of the
White government and we are headed toward a technological maelstrom
Of the golden age of the HUMAN RACE but alas I hope I decipher I pray to
No God but whoever has the ears and eyes and arm fat to listen with their
Splintered consciousness and their painted red toenails and girlfriends who
Whisper they have always loved another and how TRUE UNTRUTH IS and
How vindictive we rant on and read on and hope and believe that the end
Is the end but it is only the end for you and their will be new blood and new eyes
And new minds and we will grow old but the rivers water will be recycled, as we
Will be recycled into the dust and the mud and the rubble to further build the streets
As the street makers and the bread winners will smile as they think they are the
First ones to think up such a crafty, inventive invention but hierarchies are on the horizon
And I remember I was born with a name that I never grew to know or fall in love with
Or defend or keep close to my heart for the heart is weary hunter and it ventures on
With or without the body.
Note to self.
Recall the last rite before you begin on to the next one.
History has spilt its blood and its fair share of orange juice, try not to remember the numbers but remember the amount of burned chairs.
Note to self, returned.
The heaters on and the soul is not dancing but jiving like icing on a three year olds birthday cake.
Submission time to the chief, submission time
To those other guys, whose faces I’ve never smelt, but who are there waiting and whining that the times are no longer a changing.
Keep up the smiles, keep out the frowns.
Negativity is the attribute of the terrorist. Don’t be a terrorist.
All fine men and women have once in their life been truly scared.
One ten till the train leaves.

Good night major split hairs.

On the second of the fort
Nights beckoned a call dim
Lit by ill fated mechanisms that
Were men and women and
Children and the forgotten dream of
What was meant long ago and was is
Meant now but not followed through.

With heaven comes hell and hell fire and
Clouds of white with shelling from
Wars not of this world or the next or
The one’s thereafter and lingering history,
With its bells and trinkets and tombstones,
That have been weathered but are still not gone.

Memory not mourning, pictures in a frame lit
From the inside out and drinks were there
When we were not meant to be there like a
Kiss on a flower you picked at an age where
Life was not known and death was even
Farther away for it existed not in the eyes of yours
But in everyone else around you, except for the
Other children of course but oh’ of course.

If your trying to get the part of the stuff
That makes you recall the upstairs of the
Idiocies of the room romance that restricts but
Contains life and halters life and stifles life with
That one must recall a past life where tears
Mean nothing when you produce them too often.

Can of the hypocritical malice of mis-informed family
Foundations and we break into the minds of the way
It should be and the way it shouldn’t be and yet here
When we gaze out across the wide spread of the world
And its many ways it spells out with a God’s own language
The morning of the ear who listens and speaks when not spoken
To breaking every single rule of the word and smiling
Throughout the whole ****** thing.

Canons of repetition where life winces and the wife begins to wheeze
And fall, her dress is now clear and her eyes just don’t seem to be
Where we are now I believe that money is the root of this soon to be dead
Tree and streets are now empty as the moon casts its silver glaze and
The breeze is now naked with her bra on the floor cast in straw while
The wizards write their spells and comb their hair and draw out plans
For the next great fall but watch the fireworks and the way they hail and
Crawl throughout the entire bawl and Ol’ Ezra P. mass amounts of rage
To bring to the stage but here ye’ O great one this place is for us all.

Here in the house of the not that is shared but all is seen here
Where the wind blows to no east and no west and no south and
No other way that you believe to get headed to the world of
The no names and experience makes you wise and yet old
And remembered for the drinks you paid for but especially for
The ones you forgot to pay for but that is what friends are for.

Omnivores in latitudes that matter not to the public eye but
To the ear of the Lord that is not everyone’s savior but
Chosen just for the right eye so within that decree of mastery
We entrance the light and shovel up the leaves leaving the last
Way of things to be the first way of things when the lights
Are quickly turned off and on and off and on again and again;
Stars are naked until the sun rises in your hometown and the radio
Turns on.

And the background music chimes with a willingness of a cockroach but
Holds the beauty of a **** statue found in the under toe of a lost
Beach in a lost land forgotten in time but embraced by eternity and
Though does not dwindle its numerous names or its many ways
Of being for the hour does shackle us all but here in high array of
None other then eight times the way through the cobbled up in the
Attic of the fiercest neanderthal dictator with ideas holding truths upon
Truths that in the end mean nothing  for advancement is not determined
But continued upon as long as we forget the past and look to the future hymn
Of the childless winged’ beasts that were once forgotten but now embraced

Not of this world but of the entirety of the reality of banality
Breathing back and forth inhaling and exhaling releasing the
Mind of the mares of the wandering rewinds of infinite space
And inside the eyes of the highest levee which has broken but
Has not yet spilt holding back its power for the remainder of the
Year and catacombs upon catacombs of forgotten text of never
Forgotten men recalling their former lives and their former passions
And the hastiness of their possession of the word and the avoidance
Of the death touch the death mark the black spot upon us all.

Dog on a hill cloud high in the sky nut on the ground no not a sound
Frost on your fingertips toe of the boot covered a steel dull mud
Suds from a water rushing miles away nodding branches of a dead tree
Wind through the high grass birds in the sky that fly but not chirp
Sun in the sky rice fields burn brown crickets rub their thighs together
Not here but in the corn stocks and pig stocks brown in the reverse order
Platters of pinch salt and pepper underneath the floor boards creek for
Creak and dollar for dollar we make the rounds and we do not frown.

And the meet of the neat make their rapid conversations in dual order
Where they tell themselves this but I hear that and you make what you want
Unless you ain’t got the stuff but if your lucky and if your smart you’ll
Grab the oven and bake that **** but in case you don’t see the sunset and
Your buried without your toes look for your voice because that’s the only
Way you’ll get to know the stars in the sky or the dirt on the ground for
The fun is growing but the lurkers are smirking for they got the pennies and
They got the nickels and these streets are breaking so you gotta’ start thinking
Of a way to get outta’ this place and FAST or else you’ll be staring down the
Barrel of a 33 to ONE typing and writing and peeping around the corner of
Your dear old ***** that hasn’t found in a home in years but don’t look too
Down because one day that ONE will come around either by taxi or by train
Or by some kind of war and if you’ve got the gut and the money and the honey to
Keep her tight and alright and flying that lovers kite then your bound to keep
Yourself from the giggles and nearer to the harmony of the way things ought to
Be but may not really be but perhaps can be if you will it around and swill it with
Your will making sure your lies and that white or ain’t that black or ain’t that real
Or you ain’t lying at all but stay truer to the truth with the water resolution of the
Insipid insecurity of the first love you thought you knew but now see that it was
The one three or four later and how right I am in knowing nothing and knowing
Everything and letting the mind skip and play and register new friends in the new
Cities and the new alleys and the smiles that break across the ice like a crack of of a
Whip and counting the days ones gone blowing through the high valley and the low
Trenches of war I do not wish to go to but may be forced too because this man believes
Just what he says.

Inguinal Canal Structure – Anatomy

Last Updated on Mon, 06 Sep 2021 |

The inguinal canal is much like a rectangular tube in that it consists of four walls with openings at both ends, described as follows (Figure 7-4):

Anterior wall. Formed by the external oblique aponeurosis.

Posterior wall. Formed by the conjoint tendon of the internal oblique and the transverse abdominis muscles and the transversalis fascia.

Roof. Formed by arching fibers of the internal oblique and the transverse abdominis muscles.

Floor. The medial half of the inguinal ligament forms the inferior wall of the inguinal canal. This rolled-under, free margin of the external oblique aponeurosis forms a gutter or trough on which the contents of the inguinal canal are positioned. The lacunar ligament reinforces most of the medial part of the floor. Deep inguinal ring. Formed by an opening in the transversalis fascia. The deep inguinal ring is located superior to the inguinal ligament, lateral to the inferior epigastric vessels, and halfway between the pubic bone and the anterior superior iliac spine.

Superficial inguinal ring. Formed by an opening in the external oblique aponeurosis superior and medial to the pubic tubercle.

The contents of the inguinal canal include the genital branch of the genitofemoral nerve (L1-L2), the spermatic cord in males, and the round ligament of the uterus in females. Additionally, in both males and females, the ilioinguinal nerve (L1) passes through part of the canal. The ilioinguinal nerve courses between the internal oblique and the transverse abdominis muscles and enters in the middle of the inguinal canal in both males and females. The ilioinguinal nerve exits the inguinal canal through the superficial inguinal ring with other contents that course through the inguinal canal.

VWhen the anterior abdominal wall muscles contract, intra-abdominal pressure increases (e.g., forceful exhalation; coughing). This increase in pressure pushes the diaphragm up, forcing air out of the lungs. The inguinal canal, with its openings in the anterior abdominal wall, serves as a potential weakness when intra-abdominal pressure increases. When the posterior wall the inguinal canal weakens (e.g., in the elderly), an increase in intra-abdominal pressure may force the small intestine into the inguinal canal, resulting in a hernia. To check for the presence of a hernia in males, the healthcare provider will insert a finger up into the scrotum to the superficial inguinal ring. The patient is instructed to increase intra-abdominal pressure by coughing. If the physician feels contact on the fingertip, a hernia is most likely present.

Hernias are classified as direct or indirect, with the inferior epigastric vessels serving as the differentiating landmark.

Direct hernia. Results when the small intestine protrudes into the canal medial to the inferior epigastric vessels. Indirect hernia. Results when the small intestine protrudes into the canal lateral to the inferior epigastric vessels into the inguinal canal. ▼

Ingrown Toenail Infection | CurveCorrect

An ingrown toenail can become infected if the nail causes a break in the skin. The opening in the skin allows bacteria to enter the tissues under the skin. These bacteria will multiply and destroy the tissues which cause the body to react with inflammation. This is the main mechanism of ingrown toenail infection.

Human skin is a barrier for microorganisms. Some bacteria can be normally found on human skin. The most dominant one is Staphylococcus epidermis. Other types of bacteria that can be found on human skin are micrococci, Pseudomonas, diphtheroid. They will not cause any symptoms if they stay only on the skin. If the skin is intact, it will prevent bacteria and other microorganisms to enter the human body.


Stages of Ingrown Toenail Infection

In the first stage of an infected ingrown nail, the microorganism which entered the toe will start multiplying and destroying the surrounding tissue. It will cause the migration of the inflammatory cells from the blood to the site of infection. In this stage, the human immune system will battle the microorganism to prevent further development of infection. That will lead to swelling, redness and tenderness of the toe.

If the patient is immune-compromised, if the infection is not treated properly, if the microorganism is resistant to treatment methods or if the microorganism is multiplying faster than it is being destroyed then the infection will last for a longer period of time. This will cause the accumulation of the human immune cells from the blood and bacteria from the skin. As the battle between them lasts longer it leads to an accumulation of dead matter in the toe. The dead matter are destroyed bacteria, immune cells, and tissue which was destroyed by bacteria. They form a clear/yellow liquid called pus which will start draining from the infected ingrown toenail.

If the infection continues then granulation tissue will be formed. The formation of granulation tissue will start after the special cells from the human blood, called fibroblasts, migrate to the site of infection. There are also other immune cells in granulation tissue. As the granulation tissue grows it covers the site of pus drainage and in that way it prevents drainage. This will eventually lead to recurrence of infection.

The infected ingrown toenail will be swollen, red and extremely painful to touch or pressure. In the second stage, at the site of ingrowing toenail, pus will start draining. In the beginning, it will be firmer and in later stages, it will probably be yellowish or greenish, sticky and it will smell unpleasant. If the infection progresses to stage three, at the site of infection a new tissue will form. It will be pinkish colored and may bleed.

Infections Caused by an Ingrown Toenail

Depending on the spread of microorganisms in the human body there are several forms of infection which can be caused by an ingrown toenail. Local infection of the soft tissue of the side of the toe is called paronychia. The mechanism of paronychia infection caused by the ingrown toenail is described above in the text. Shortly, microorganisms enter the soft tissue on the side of the toe through a wound which was created by an ingrown toenail. There they will multiply and fight with the immune cells which will lead to infection and pus formation. There are also other causes of paronychia: nail biting, sucking thumbs by infants and manicures/pedicures.
In the acute form of paronychia, ingrown toenail infection will spread in a few hours and it will lead to abscess formation. If the infected ingrown toenail is more severe it can cause fever and enlargement of lymph nodes. The most common causes are Staphylococcus. In the chronic form, the process will go more slowly. It will eventually lead to inflammation of the toe and may eventually lead to the destruction of the nail plate. In this case, fungal infection is more common.

Paronychia, Hardin Library for the Health Sciences, 2010, available from http://hardinmd.lib.uiowa.edu/dermnet/paronychia2.html


Cellulitis is an infection of the skin. It can be caused by bacteria which entered the body after the toenail was ingrown. Cellulitis will be located on the side of the ingrown nail. The whole foot can be swollen, red, painful and warm. If it is untreated it can be very dangerous and it may lead to bacteremia and sepsis (bacteria spread through the entire body which can lead to organ failure). The diagnosis can be made by physical assessment. Antibiotic treatment should be started immediately.

Diagnosis of Ingrown Toenail Infection

If you have any symptoms of ingrown toenail infection you should visit your physician. This condition can be diagnosed by local inspection of the toe. If the ingrown toenail is already in the abscess stage then a wound swab should be taken to confirm the diagnosis and to find which microorganism causes it. This will also help the physician to prescribe the appropriate antibiotic which will treat the infected ingrown toenail.


Treatment of Ingrown Toenail Infection

There are several methods for treatment of an infected ingrown toenail. If the toe is still not too infected then one of the first methods which should be used is soaking of the toe. The foot can be soaked in warm water for ten minutes and repeated several times per day. It will soften the skin on the side of the toe in where the toenail is ingrown. That will allow the patient to retract the skin and expose the side of the toenail. You can also add Epsom salt or antibacterial solutions into the water. This method can be helpful for treatment of the first stage of an ingrown toenail. Cotton can be used to elevate the ingrown part of the nail.

If there are signs of infection then local antibiotic therapy can be started. This can be helpful in some milder cases of infection. The most commonly used topical antibiotic is Neosporin.
In the case of more severe infection, oral antibiotic therapy is indicated. Oral broad spectrum antibiotics should be prescribed to try to reduce the infection. Swab culture can be helpful in determining which antibiotic should be prescribed.

In case any of the conservative measures do not show progress in the treatment of ingrown toenail infection then surgery is the only solution. There are a variety of different surgical techniques which can be used to treat an infected ingrown toenail.

Preventing Infection of an Ingrown Toenail

The best prevention of ingrown toenail infection is preventing the occurrence of the ingrown toenail in the first place. Practice proper foot care. Wear shoes and socks that do not fit tightly. Toenails should be trimmed straight across. Ingrown toenails should be treated before ingrown toenail infection is allowed to occur. It should be soaked and washed more frequently. The foot should always be dry. At the first sign if an infected ingrown toenail, you should visit your physician.

Dermatophyte infections – Knowledge @ AMBOSS

Last updated: April 14, 2021


Dermatophyte infections, also known as tinea, are the most common fungal infections of the skin, hair, and nails. The term “dermatophyte” refers to fungal species that infect keratinized tissue, and includes members of the Trichophyton, Microsporum, and Epidermophyton genera. Tinea are classified based on their location (e.g., tinea pedis occurs on the feet and tinea capitis on the scalp). Children and immunocompromised individuals are more likely to contract tinea infections, especially tinea capitis. However, people of all ages may suffer from tinea pedis or tinea unguium. The clinical features of dermatophyte infection include pruritus, scaling, and erythema. The best initial test for the diagnosis of dermatophyte infection is potassium hydroxide (KOH) preparation, which allows segmented hyphae to be seen on microscopy. Generally, the treatment for dermatophyte infections is topical antifungals. Oral antifungals (e.g., terbinafine, griseofulvin) are always used in tinea capitis and are also used for severe, refractory cases of other kinds of tinea. Concomitant tinea infections in household members or pets should be treated as well.

Tinea versicolor, despite its name, is not caused by dermatophytes and is discussed in another article.




Treatment of dermatophyte infections


  • Topical antifungals
  • Systemic antifungal therapy
  • Chemical and surgical treatments for onychomycosis

    • Chemical removal of nail (e.g., with high dose urea or potassium iodide)
    • Surgical removal of the nail is indicated if systemic therapy is not effective.
  • Other measures

    • Examination and treatment of symptomatic household members
    • Avoid close personal contact and sharing of potentially contaminated objects (e.g., shoes, combs) should be avoided to prevent the infection from spreading.

Because topical treatments are unable to penetrate the hair shaft, systemic therapy with oral antifungals such as griseofulvin or terbinafine is necessary in tinea capitis.

To prevent tinea infections from spreading, contaminated objects should not be shared (e.g., shoes, combs). Other members of the household and pets who are infected should also receive treatment!

Pseudomonas skin infections | DermNet NZ

Author: Brian Wu PhD. MD Candidate, Keck School of Medicine, Los Angeles, USA; Chief Editor: Dr Amanda Oakley, Dermatologist, Hamilton, New Zealand, November 2015. Revised January 2021.


Pseudomonas species are Gram-negative rod-shaped bacteria widespread in water and soil. Infections of the skin or soft tissues by Pseudomonas aeruginosa and other Pseudomonas spp. range from superficial discolourations to serious and life-threatening because these bacteria are invasive and toxigenic.

What causes pseudomonas skin infections?

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is commonly found transiently on the skin, especially in the axillary and anogenital regions, and readily colonises ulcers and moist skin. However, healthy people do not normally develop pseudomonas infection. Pseudomonas is considered to be an opportunistic infection causing serious disease in immunocompromised patients, damaged tissue, or following accidental intravenous access.

Pseudomonas species can be transmitted in hospitals due to contaminated surfaces and via hands of staff, and is responsible for approximately 10% of all nosocomial infections.

Who is at risk for pseudomonas skin infections?

Patients at highest risk for these infections include those with:

  • Malignancies
  • HIV/AIDs
  • Burns
  • Diabetes
  • Intravenous catheter
  • Indwelling urinary catheter
  • Surgery
  • Trauma.

What are the clinical features of a pseudomonas skin infection?

Signs of pseudomonas infection vary depending upon the site of the infection, but can include:

  • Erythematous (red) lesions that can become haemorrhagic or necrotic
  • Acneform rash
  • Deep abscess
  • Subcutaneous nodules
  • Cellulitis
  • Necrotising fasciitis
  • Black or purple discolouration or eschar.

Pseudomonas skin infection

What are the different types of pseudomonas skin infections?

  • External otitis is the most common infection due to Pseudomonas spp. particularly in the tropics and in swimmers: patients present with pain, swelling, and redness of the external portions of the ear as well as a purulent discharge. Malignant (necrotising) external otitis is more serious affecting diabetic patients presenting as severe pain and discharge. Damage to cranial nerves, particularly the facial nerve, is common.
  • Chronic paronychia and onycholysis involving Pseudomonas spp. presents as a greenish discolouration of the nail.
  • Spa pool folliculitis is a pseudomonas infection acquired in inadequately chlorinated hot tubs. Patients present with itchy follicular papules and pustules on any part of the body submerged in the tub.
  • Puncture wounds of the foot can frequently become infected with Pseudomonas species and the patient will present with a sweet, fruity-smelling discharge. Cellulitis and osteomyelitis are common complications.
  • Ecthyma gangrenosum typically develops in neutropenic patients as erythematous, ulcerated, purple or black skin lesions in the axillary, inguinal, or anogenital areas.
  • Thermal burn wounds with an eschar can be populated by Pseudomonas spp. resulting in bacteraemia (bacteria in the blood stream), a complication with a high mortality rate.
  • Chronic leg ulcer colonisation with Pseudomonas spp is recognised by a malodorous greenish superficial crust.
  • Tropical immersion foot develops in the toeweb spaces as areas of maceration with a greenish tinge.
  • Pseudomonas infection of the umbilical stump in the neonate present as a spreading erythema associated with the typical green fruity-smelling discharge.
  • Pseudochromhidrosis due to Pseudomonas aeruginosa presents as green-black sweat.

Pseudomonas nail infection

What are the complications from pseudomonas skin infections?

The most serious complication of a pseudomonas skin or soft tissue infection is bacteraemia following contaminated intravenous fluids, drugs, or antiseptics used during placement of an intravenous line. This can be fatal.

How are pseudomonas skin infections diagnosed?

Pseudomonas infections are suspected on physical examination when there is a a greenish or blackish, fruity-smelling discharge. They are confirmed by laboratory studies of cultures taken from the affected area.

What are the treatments for pseudomonas skin infections?

Treatment is determined by the site of the pseudomonas infection and its severity. It may include:

  • Antibiotics
  • Irrigation with a 1% acetic acid solution for otitis externa together with topical polymyxin B, or fluoroquinolones in cases of a more severe infection
  • Debridement of necrotic tissue and/or drainage of abscesses as an adjuvant to antibiotic therapy
  • Amputation of affected limb (in rare cases).

What is the alternative treatment for inguinal fungus?

Remitazol is intended for the safe fight against and recovery from external mycoses. It has an effective effect on skin lesions (dermatomycosis, versicolor, seborrhea) and destruction of the nail plate (onychomycosis).A feature of this product is the ability to use it at any age. Efficiency is combined with safety and absence of side effects.

The effect of the use of alternative treatment of inguinal fungus

The wide spectrum of activity of the cream against the fungus Remitazol makes it the most effective in the treatment of onychomycosis and skin lesions at any stage. Even in advanced cases, it allows you to do without systemic therapy, reduces the risks for the liver, gastrointestinal tract and neutralizes the drug load on the body.

Expert opinion

Over time, with constant use of the Remitazol complex, the nail plate begins to accumulate biologically active substances. In a certain way, a special protective shell is created, which prevents re-infection. Further, a new healthy nail begins to grow at the root.

Ingrown nail – SCCH

Ingrown toenail is a fairly common disease that occurs in childhood, especially adolescence, and adulthood and is characterized by ingrowth of the lateral edge of the nail plate into the surrounding soft tissues, leading to rubbing of the skin along the nail and its inflammation.Mainly the outer edge of the nail bed is affected. More common on the first toes.

There are several causes of the disease.

Most frequent.

  1. Incorrect nail cutting . When the nails are cut incorrectly, the lateral edges of the nail plate are cut too deep and towards the base, this leads to improper nail growth and ingrowth into the soft tissues of the finger.
  2. wearing tight shoes .When wearing uncomfortable, tight and narrow shoes, especially with a sharp nose, the nail plate under the pressure of the shoe walls cuts into the nail roller, permanently injuring it. As a result, a purulent wound is formed, granulations appear.

Other causes of an ingrown toenail are: finger injuries, flat feet, fungal infections of the nails that cause deformation, thickening of the nail, promoting ingrowth into the soft tissue of the finger and often nail injuries.

The main symptom of an ingrown toenail is constant pain in the area of ​​the nail fold, aggravated by walking and wearing shoes.When viewed at the very beginning of the disease, you can see a small ulcer in the place where there is a constant trauma to the nail fold. When an infection is attached (which happens quickly enough), scanty purulent discharge may appear. Further, the growth of pathological granulations is noted – this is an excessive proliferation of tissues in the area of ​​\ u200b \ u200bthe wound of the nail fold in response to injury and infection. Such granulations have the color of raw meat. With their appearance, the disease becomes chronic, making walking much more difficult.

If you find these symptoms in yourself, you should contact a surgeon. It is necessary to pass a general blood test to assess the severity of the inflammatory process, blood sugar, to exclude the presence of diabetes mellitus. Complications are possible in the form of a transition of a purulent process to the finger bone. If you suspect a fungal infection, you will need to undergo treatment with a dermatologist, since without eliminating the cause of the disease, it makes no sense to treat its consequences.

Treatment is carried out on an outpatient basis in the clinic .At the very beginning of the disease, when the infection and pathological granulations are not expressed, conservative treatment is carried out, which is also used to prepare for surgical treatment. It is necessary to exclude mechanical impact on the nail plate. This is achieved by wearing loose, comfortable shoes with a wide toe; it is even better to walk barefoot for a while or in shoes with an open front (sandals, flip flops).

Conservative treatment consists in the fact that two to three times a day it is necessary to perform warm baths with salt water, this helps to soften the skin and nail plate.To reduce the degree of inflammation, in parallel, it is necessary to perform baths with a weak solution of potassium permanganate (“potassium permanganate”) or baking soda. It is effective to lay gauze strips impregnated with 0.5% aqueous-alcoholic solution of chlorhexidine between the nail and the skin roller, which are re-moistened as they dry, reaching a constant presence of an antiseptic solution in the wound area. In addition, laying a gauze strip reduces mechanical stress on the nail roll, which helps to reduce pain and faster wound healing.

Currently, there are special devices in the form of springs, plates, staples that serve as a lining between the nail and the skin roll to eliminate the mechanical factor of injury. By lifting the edges of the nail, they help relieve pressure on the nail roll, relieve pain and correct the shape of the nail.

If pathological granulations and purulent discharge appear, then this indicates the neglect of the process and the need for surgical treatment.

There are several types of surgical interventions for an ingrown nail.They are performed under local anesthesia.

The simplest way to treat an ingrown toenail is to remove a part or a whole nail plate. The nail will grow in 3 months. The positive results of simply removing part or all of the nail plate are quite high. Sometimes the nail grows in again. To reduce the frequency of relapses, it is necessary to curettage and remove pathological granulations.

Some specialists prefer the plastic of the nail fold: with an oval incision on the lateral surface of the finger, part of the skin is removed and the edges of the resulting wound are sutured with interrupted sutures.As a result, due to the tension, the periungual roller is turned inside out and ceases to contact the nail plate. This allows you to achieve a stable remission of the disease.

In addition, modern technologies are used. The least traumatic method of surgical treatment of this disease is laser correction. Under the action of the high temperature of the laser beam, the ingrown part and the edge of the growth zone of the nail are evaporated. At the same time, pathological granulations and foci of infection are eliminated at the same time.The laser is also used for fungal infection of the nail plate, with the help of it the entire subungual space is sterilized from fungal spores.

Most often complications occur in the chronic course of an ingrown toenail. The development of complications is facilitated by: diabetes mellitus, obliterating atherosclerosis of the vessels of the lower extremities. With these diseases, the blood supply to the soft tissues of the finger is disrupted, which reduces their ability to regenerate and resistance to infection.

As a result, such pathological conditions develop as

  • lymphangitis and lymphadenitis (the infection spreads through the lymphatic vessels, causing their inflammation, often to the nearest lymph nodes (popliteal and inguinal lymph nodes), where it lingers, causing their enlargement and pain syndrome;
  • abscess of toe – purulent inflammation of the soft tissues of the toe, accompanied by edema and redness of the entire nail phalanx, requires surgical intervention.
  • osteomyelitis of the nail phalanx of the finger – the transition of a purulent infection to the bone, difficult to treat, may require amputation of the phalanx of the finger.
  • Toe gangrene – irreversible necrosis of the soft tissues of the foot, accompanied by blackening of the skin. The only treatment is amputation of the nail phalanx or the entire toe.

For the prevention of ingrown toenails , a number of simple rules should be followed:

  • wearing loose shoes.
  • treatment of orthopedic diseases (flat feet).
  • observance of personal hygiene.
  • Timely treatment of a fungal infection by a specialist dermatologist.
  • Observance of correct nail trimming technique. The nail should be trimmed in a straight line no lower than the tip of the toe using sharp, straight nail scissors. The edges of the nail must be filed at the corners with a nail file so that they are smooth and do not injure the skin.

At the first signs of illness, you should consult a surgeon.In the early stages, the disease can be cured without surgery.
