International Journal of Current Research and Academic Review
Article Info The study of the long-term dynamics of morbidity, features of the epidemiology and clinical course of zooanthroponotic trichophytia in Tashkent region of Uzbekistan. Retrospective analysis of the dynamics of morbidity and demographic structure was carried out on the basis of data processing of the annual statistical reporting of Tashkent Regional skin and venereal diseases dispensary (form SSV-9) for 2015-2017. Prospective studies of clinical manifestations, ways of infection were
... of infection were conducted in 250 patients with zooatroponous trichophytosis at the age of 3 months -40 years. Microscopic and bacteriological methods were used to determine the species composition of the pathogens. A steady increase in the number of patients with zooanthroponotic trichophytosis and indicators per 100,000 population is noted in Tashkent region in 2015-2017. Along with the high morbidity of children and adolescents, the proportion of adult patients, mainly from rural areas, increases. Tr. verrucosum dominated the species spectrum of mycosis pathogens, less often Tr. mentagrophytes var. gypseum. The clinical picture was dominated by multiple superficial and infiltrative-suppurative foci on smooth skin and scalp and atypical localization, often combined, complicated by symptoms of intoxication and allergic reactions. The analysis of the obtained results indicates an unfavorable epidemiological situation, which indicates the need for strengthening sanitary and epidemiological control, increasing active patient detection and improvement of therapy with regard to studying the pathogenesis of common and complicated forms of the disease.
