Fifty cases of pityriasis versicolor, confirmed mycologically, were each treated with either 20 % miconazole nitrate cream or 1% econazole nitrate cream. Patients were followed up at second, fourth and sixth weeks. Degree of repigmentation was noted and KOH preparation done at each to determine mycological cure. At the end of six weeks all the patients using all regimes were mycologically cured but only 30.4% showed complete repigmentation in the lesions.
