Abstract: This valuable monograph gives information that will permit all diagnostic laboratories to undertake the identification of the aetiological agents of ringworm. It begins with a general account of fungal which includes descriptions of spores and other characteristic structures that can be observed both in the parasitic phase and in by: 6. Objective: The present study deals with the isolation and identification of phytopathogenic fungi. The fungal isolates were Alternaria spp (Tomato early blight), Fusarium oxysporum (Fusarium wilt.

Tinea can also spread from one part of the body to another (for example, a patient with tinea pedis can go on to develop tinea cruris). Humans and animals can also be non-symptomatic carriers and can spread tinea to others.

After isolation, fungi frequently are identified by the morphologic characteristics of spores and structures. Lactophenol cotton blue mounts are used commonly. The germ tube test, in which yeast is incubated for 2 to 3 hours at 35°C in fresh fetal calf serum, identifies Candida albicans by outgrowth of a tube (not all C. albicans are germ tube.   Ringworm fungi are known as dermatophytes -- microscopic organisms that feed on the dead tissues of your skin, hair, and nails, much like a mushroom can grow on the bark of a tree. Dermatophytes cause superficial infections—so-called because they occur on the surface of the skin.
