    Just wondering if anyone is doing PCR for dermatophytes in their clinics?

    If so which kits and PCR/Thermal Cycler used - any comments regarding cost/benefit for those failing empiric trial of topical antifungal for skin lesion presenting as tinea pedis or prior to considering oral antifungal? relative value compared to KOH as POC test?

    Cheers
