Abstracts
The aim of the investigation was to ascertain species composition of causative agents of dermatophytoses and characterize the epidemiological status of these infections in Lithuania in 2001–2010. There were isolated and identified 4580 cultures of causative agents of various dermatomycoses. During this period, the spreading of agents of dermatophytoses showed a tendency to decline. It was found out that the number of non-dermatophytes increased: at the beginning of the investigation, non-dermatophytes accounted for 3.4%, whereas at the end their number grew up to 35.9%. Among the agents of dermatomycosis, an incidence of yeasts was observed to have a tendency to grow. During the investigation, dermatophytes of the genera Trichophyton Malamsten, Microsporum Gruby and Epidermatophyton Sabouraud were isolated. In the case of dermatophytoses, the prevailing causative species was Tr. rubrum, which amounted to 55.7% in 2001, whereas in 2010 – only to 11%. The incidence of other agents of trichophytoses, namely Tr. interdigitale, Tr. tonsurans and Tr. violaceum was from 0 to 0.8%. Among fungus of the Microsporum genus, only the species M. canis was detected. Similar to other agents of dermatophytoses, the incidence of Epidermophyton genus showed a declining tendency. In the period of 2001–2010, causative agents of dermatophytoses of all the studied dermatophytes genera showed a declining tendency, whereas incidences of Candida yeasts and other causative agents of dermatomycoses greatly increased.
