ABSTRACT

 

Article No.: 040421032

Type: Research

 

Background: Immunosuppression due to various aetiologies have been associated with the occurrence of dermatophytosis. Several studies in the past have demonstrated that Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection is a risk factor for the acquisition and severity of dermatophytosis.

Aim: This study examined the prevalence and pattern of dermatophytosis among patients with HIV infection in the University of Port - Harcourt Teaching Hospital, Port Harcourt, Southern Nigeria.

Method: This was a cross-sectional study carried out in Port Harcourt over a 6 month period involving 173 HIV sero-positive cases and 173 seronegative controls subjects. They were interviewed with a structured questionnaire and thereafter screened for the presence of dermatophytosis. Samples were collected from those with clinically diagnosed dermatophytosis and sent for mycology studies. Information were anaylsed using SPSS version 20.

Results: There was a higher prevalence of dermatophytosis in the HIV seropositive group when compared to the HIV seronegative control made up of HIV seronegative subjects. Most of the lesions seen were not markedly different from that seen in immunocompetent persons. 41.65% of the cases were found among those with Cd4 cell counts  below 200cells/µl. Tinea corporis was the commonest lesion seen (50%). Trichophyton species was the commonest dermatophyte isolated, followed by Microsporum species.

Conclusion: The prevalence of dermatophytosis is significantly higher in HIV infected patients and commonly occurs in advanced stages of the disease. Tinea corporis is the most common lesion in this group of patients and Trichophyton species a common causative agent.
