Resumen

VEGA-SANCHEZ, Diana Carolina et al. Superficial mycosis in pregnant patients in a general hospital. Med. interna Méx. [online]. 2019, vol.35, n.1, pp.16-19. ISSN 0186-4866.  https://doi.org/10.24245/mim.v35i1.2126.

BACKGROUND:

Superficial mycoses are generated by direct contact with the fungus or with an infected person or animal, and affect the skin, the attachments and mucous membranes; pregnant patients are susceptible to skin changes, both physiological and pathological.

OBJECTIVE:

To know the frequency of superficial mycoses in pregnant patients from the obstetrics service of the Hospital General Dr. Manuel Gea González.

MATERIAL AND METHOD:

A descriptive, observational, prospective and crosssectional study carried out in pregnant patients of the Gineco-Obstetrics Service of the Hospital General Dr. Manuel Gea González, Mexico City, from July 2016 to July 2017.

RESULTS:

Twenty-three patients were included in the mycology department for their physical examination; the most affected group was between 21 and 40 age years (86.9%); 17 patients presented tinea pedis (73.9%) and 4 (17.9%) onychomycosis.

CONCLUSIONS:

Superficial mycosis were not frequent in the group of study: 17 patients had tinea pedis and 4 onychomycosis. The causal agent isolated was Trichophyton rubrum.
