||An increase in the incidence of tinea (dermatophytosis) of the hands and feet has been observed, and is particularly frequent in miners. In a randomly selected sample of 287 Yugoslav miners mycological examination revealed parasites in 175 individuals (more than 60% of the examined miners). Topical therapy combined with antibiotics and timely surgical treatment is effective, but usually does not prevent further spread of the disease. Preventive measures should comprise: workplace hygiene, personal hygiene, periodic medical examinations and health education. Special emphasis is laid on preventing parasite-host contact.
