Title:
Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing of Dermatophytes -- Comparison of the Agar Macrodilution and Broth Microdilution Tests 
Abstract:
Fifty dermatophyte strains, recently obtained from clinical material, belonging to 4 different species were examined for their susceptibility to 5 systemic or topical antimycotic agents using both an agar macrodilution and a broth microdilution test. Antimycotics compared were griseofulvin, itraconazole, sertaconazole, terbinafine and ciclopiroxolamine.
