Caption: Trichophyton violaceum. View of a 7 week growth of the fungus Trichophyton violaceum, cultured in a petri dish. The fungal mycelium is seen growing outwards in different colours. This fungus is one of the causative agents of the scalp skin condition tinea capitis or ringworm of the scalp. In North Africa this fungus is the commonest cause of tinea capitis. Trichophyton violaceum inhabits the skin of the scalp giving rise to round, scaly lesions and producing itchy patches of hair loss, mainly in children. It is spread by contact with fungal spores. Ringworm is treated with anti- fungal drugs.
