Özet

Background/aim: Dermatophytes are the causative agents of dermatophytosis, which is a common disease worldwide that affects the hair, skin, and nails. Dermatophytes comprise more than 40 species in 3 genera: Microsporum, Trichophyton, and Epidermaphyton. In this study, we aimed to determine the effectiveness of seven antifungal agents: amphotericin B, terbinafine, itraconazole, voriconazole, ketoconazole, miconazole, and fluconazole.
