Outdoor airborne dermatophytes and related fungi : a survey in Turin (Italy).
Aerial dispersal of propagules, an important mechanism of fungal spread, has not been sufficiently studied for skin-infecting fungi.
Over a period of one year, we have monitored the distribution of dermatophytes in the air of Turin.
We have also examined the related aleurioconidic and arthroconidic fungi, which share physiological and morphological characters with dermatophytes and are sometimes considered to cause similar infections.
A viable volumetric collector was used.
