Abstract

This is the largest study of laboratory-diagnosed onychomycosis in England for children younger than 17 years. The most common (91.5%) cultured organism in this population was Trichophyton rubrum. Candida species were isolated only from fingernails, and the majority were from children younger than 5 years. Continued analysis of fungal pathogens is vital to identify changing trends.
