The in vitro activity of itraconazole was investigated against 88 clinical isolates of dermatophytes. The isolates included Microsporum canis-50, M. audovinii-5, Trichophyton rubrum-6, T. mentagraphytes-5 T.violaceum-12, T.simii-5, T verrucosum-1, T.soundanense-1, T. erinacei-1 and Epidermophyton flooccosum-2 isolates. The results were compared with that of ketoconazole and griseofulvin. Itraconazole was more active, inhibiting 85 of the 88 isolates at a concentration of 0.5 g/ml (MIC range 0.01-1 g/ml). Ketoconazole (MIC range 0.1-10 g/ml) required 2.5 g/ml and 5 g/ml of the drug respectively for inhibition of all the isolates except one of Microsporum species.
