Disease Ontology:8 A dermatophytosis that results in contagious fungal infection located in scalp, located in hair of head, located in eyebrow or located in eyelash, has material basis in ascomycota fungi that belong to a group called dermatophytes and has symptom itching of the scalp, has symptom pus filled lesions on the scalp, and has symptom patches of hair loss, sometimes with a 'black dot' pattern.

MalaCards: Tinea Capitis, also known as tinea capitis due to trichophyton rubrum, is related to blindness and alopecia, and has symptoms including patches of hair loss, pus filled lesions on the scalp and itching of the scalp. An important gene associated with Tinea Capitis is KATNAL2 (katanin p60 subunit A-like 2), and among its related pathways is Pathways in cancer. The drugs griseofulvin and terbinafine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include scalp, hair of head and eyebrow or.
