Superficial fungal diseases are one of the most common endemic diseases in Iran, especially in rural areas and areas that are in poor health and are mostly related to domestic animals.. Animals such as cow, sheep, dog and cat are assumed as the main origin of these infections. Infection in animals is often a chronic incidence but in humans is along with severe inflammatory reactions. Upward tr end of superficial cutaneous fungal infections is one of the hygienic problems of developed and eveloping societies and zoophilic factors have a major effect on incidence of such infections.
