The Dermatophytes causing superficial infection differ from place to place.1 Environmental conditions, economical factors like poverty, overcrowding, personal hygiene & individual’s susceptibility governs their prevalence. There are evidences that the predominance of species not only differs from region to region but also may change from time to time. Patients diagnosed clinically suffering from ringworm infection and not having any significant medical history were selected for present study from the Skin & Venereal Disease Out Patient Department and examined in Mycology section of the Microbiology department. A complete history including age, sex, site, type & duration of lesion along with any predisposing factor like occupational exposure to animal source [farmers, veterinary personals, pet keepers] or family contact were noted. Clinical type more common in male were T. corporis, T. cruris, T. capitis, T. barbae. Clinical type more common in female were T. pedis, T. manuum, T. unguium and Non-dermatophyte onychomycosis.
