Zoonotic importance of dermatophytosis in dogs and cats

By Cindy Paola Cruz Alcala

Category Theses

Dermatophytoses are infections caused by dermatophyte fungi of the genus Microsporum, Epidermophyton and Trichophyton, which affect the keratinized tissues of the skin, hair and nails. Dermatophytosis in canines and felines are frequent pathologies that constitute an important mycosis in these hosts and that because of their zoonotic nature can be transmitted to human hosts.
