Abstract

Superficial mycoses, acquired by direct or indirect contact with an infected animal or person, are frequent in childhood. The most common pathogens in immunocompetent children are yeasts (Candida and Malasezzia) and dermatophytes. The morbidity of the superficial mycoses is as important as trivialized, which gives the false impression that it constitutes a minor problem despite its high incidence in routine practice. In this consensus document of the Spanish Society of Pediatric Infectious Diseases (SEIP), the Spanish Association of Primary Care Pediatrics (AEPap) and the Spanish Society of Pediatric Outpatient and Primary Care (SEPEAP), the essential aspects of superficial fungal infection in the immunocompetent child are addressed.
