Abstract: Due to discrepancies regarding the effectiveness of lufenuron in treating dermatophytosis caused by Microsporum canis the effect of this drug was checked in 46 cats (30 with cutaneous lesions and 16 asymptomatic carriers) treated in the Veterinary Hospital of the Federal Rural University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The diagnosis was based on Wood's lamp examination and fungal cultures. Biopsies were only performed in symptomatic animals. The animals were treated with lufenuron (120mg/kg every 21 days), for 4 ti… Show more

“…Fifty seven studies involving either spontaneous ( n = 42) or experimental ( n = 15) M. canis infections in cats and dogs ( n = 2,027) were identified and of these, 30 described Wood's lamp findings . When data were pooled from studies describing the first examination of animals with spontaneous disease, 72% (378 of 523) of animals were Wood's lamp positive . In untreated cats, positive fluorescence varied from 91 to 100%, and in animals with previous treatment fluorescence varied from 39 to 53%.…”

Except for two cats, all were culture negative at the end of treatment . In a second study from Brazil, 49 dogs and cats were divided into four treatment groups each receiving a different dose of lufenron .…”

“…Para o caso em questão, no qual ficou evidenciada a presença do fungo dermatófito Tricophyton mentagrophytes, a literatura recomenda a utilização de fungicidas tais como a griseofulvina, cetoconazol ou itraconazol, via oral por um período de tempo variando de 60 a 90 dias, com avaliações posteriores para definição da cura clínica e suspensão do tratamento (Ramadinha et al, 2010).…”
