Kazakhstan, Cutaneous dermatomycoses, epidemiological features, Dermatophytosis, prevalence


The cutaneous dermatomycoses are among topical issues in all countries worldwide. They are registered in 20% of the world population. Dermatophyte infections incidence frequency varies depending on a season, region, effective anti-epidemic measures management, and effective treatment methods. In Kazakhstan in 2001, dermatophyte infections ranked second in the structure of dermatologic pathology in outpatients. According to the literature data, not so many research studies on dermatophyte infections have been carried out in our country within recent years. The importance of these issues suggests a need to conduct epidemiological, clinical, microbiological studies of dermatophytosis at the present stage. A cross-sectional study was conducted, in which 195 cases of dermatophytosis were collected and investigated in the regional hospital in Almaty for the period from the beginning of January 2014 to the end of December 2014. Dermatophytoses prevalence is observed in patients within the 1 - 39 age range.
