Özet

BACKGROUND: Ringworm of the scalp is a dermatophyte infection prevalent in pre-school and school-aged children. Tinea capitis is one of the few superficial fungal infections that does not adequately respond to topical treatment and requires 6-8 weeks of oral antifungal therapy. The aim of this double-blind study was to compare the efficacy and tolerability of terbinafine therapy with griseofulvin therapy in children with mycologically proven tinea capitis.
