Abstract

Tegument mycoses are classified into three groups: 1) Superficial skin mycoses or superficial mycoses: infections sustained by fungi limited to the skin horny layer or the hair extrafollicular portion, without a significant inflammatory response in the host. 2) Skin mycoses (dermatophytosis) sensu stricto: fungal infections in which skin and its annexes, at the level of the keratinized layers, are involved with an evident immune response by the host 3) Mycosis of the subcutaneous tissue: fungal infections that mainly affect the subcutaneous tissue and secondarily, by contiguity, skin, bones and other tissues, with a strong immune response by the host [...].
