Trichomycosis Pubis

Trichomycosis Pubis Abstract Trichomycosis is a bacterial infection of hair that involves the axilla and, uncommonly, the pubis. The causative agent of trichomycosis pubis is probably the same as that in trichomycosis axillaris, as determined by culture and electron microscopy. We believe that increased awareness of trichomycosis pubis will show it to be common in certain environments. (Arch Dermatol 115:444-445, 1979) References 1.

Abstract

Abstract Trichomycosis is a bacterial infection of hair that involves the axilla and, uncommonly, the pubis. The causative agent of trichomycosis pubis is probably the same as that in trichomycosis axillaris, as determined by culture and electron microscopy. We believe that increased awareness of trichomycosis pubis will show it to be common in certain environments. (Arch Dermatol 115:444-445, 1979) References 1.
