Formation continue en dermatologie vétérinaire
Dermatophytosis in small animal dermatology is an infection with Microsporum or Trichophyton spp. Dermatophytes grow in two ways. In endothrix growth, arthroconidia are formed within the hairshaft (the cuticle is not destroyed), in ectothrix growth the fragmentation of mycelium into arthroconidia happens around the hairshaft and may destroy the cuticle. All dermatophytes of veterinary importance are ectothrix.
