Twenty adult patients (15 males and 5 females) with extensive, clinically diagnosed tinea versicolor (TV.) resistant to topical agents, of long duration were selected. Laboratory investigations like KOH smear, routine haemogram, LFT, and RFT were done. They were given itraconazole (100 mg) orally twice daily for 5-7 days and followed up at the end of 1 week and again three weeks later. After one week itching, erythema and scaling subsided in 80% of cases. There was no recurrence during one year follow up.
