||A comparative study of dermatophytosis in coal miners and dermatological outpatients
||Aug. 1983, Vol.40, No.3, p.353-355. 10 ref.
||234 coalminers and 244 dermatological patients, all with tinea pedis, were compared. Trichophyton rubrum was the commonest causation organism in both groups (71% and 77% respectively). Susceptibility factors such as atopy are less important in coalminers, in whom there is a high risk of endemic dermatophytosis.
