VIDEO: New diagnostic, treatment methods for fungal infections


AT ODAC 2016


ORLANDO – New diagnostic and treatment options are at the forefront of what’s new and exciting in the area of superficial cutaneous fungal infections, according to Dr. Adam Friedman.

“Although superficial cutaneous mycoses [are] extremely common, they can be quite a challenge for several reasons,” explained Dr. Friedman of the George Washington University in Washington, at the Orlando Dermatology Aesthetic and Clinical annual meeting, adding that “many of the common skin diseases are often confused for tineum, and vice versa.”

In this video interview, Dr. Friedman discusses what dermatologists should look for in terms of diagnosing and treating dermatophytes and onychomycosis, two of most common and increasingly treatable fungal infections patients are likely to present with.

Dr. Friedman did not report any relevant financial disclosures.
