Summaries for Tinea Capitis

Disease Ontology : 12 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 based summary : Tinea Capitis, also known as tinea capitis due to trichophyton rubrum, is related to dermatophytosis and kerion celsi, and has symptoms including itching of the scalp, pus filled lesions on the scalp and patches of hair loss. An important gene associated with Tinea Capitis is KATNAL2 (Katanin Catalytic Subunit A1 Like 2). The drugs Terbinafine and Miconazole have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include thyroid, skin and brain.
