Abstract

The authors report two elderly white Italian patients affected by onychomycosis of the toenails due to Trichophyton soudanense. In both cases onychomycosis was associated with plantar infection. The affected nails showed milky-white leukonychia, without subungual hyperkeratosis and onycholysis. Neither patient, both of whom had been taking low dosages of systemic steroids for several years, had ever been out of Italy nor had had any contact with African immigrants.
