Dermatophytoses are infections of the skin, hair and nails, caused by dermatophytes, namely Trichophyton spp, Microsporum spp and Epidermophyton floccosum. Trichophyton soudanense is an anthropophilic fungus, a frequent cause of tinea capitis in Africa though some imported cases are now been reported from Europe, Brazil, Australia and USA. Untill now, 3 cases of T.soudanense causing tinea capitis, tinea unguium, tinea corporis from North India and 2 cases causing tinea corporis and tinea cruris from south India have been reported, but this is probably the first case report of onychomycosis caused by T.soudanense in India.
