126 patients (82 males and 44 females) aged above 12 years, suffering from tinea corporis and/or tinea cruris, were treated with either itraconazole (100 mg once a day for 2 weeks and then plecebo for 2 weeks) (63 patients), or griseofulvin (250 mg twice a day for 4 weeks). 90.47% of the patients treated with itraconzole improved whereas griseofulvin imporved 76.19% of patients, clinically. Mycological response was 72% with itraconazole and 57% with griseofulvin.
