Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Tinea capitis caused by Trichophyton tonsurans is currently an epidemic in the United States, Europe, and Japan, and the cultivation of this microorganism is necessary for a definitive diagnosis. We recently developed a real-time PCR TaqMan assay as a culture-independent method for the rapid detection of T. tonsurans from hairbrushes.
