Abstract Report of 33 cases of Tinea microsporica due to Microsporum gypseum in gardeners in contact with glasshouse compost. The course of the disease often differed from the known clinical picture of tinea. It was possible to detect the pathogenic agent in cultures in spite of minimal efflorescence.
