Trichomycosis Pubis


Trichomycosis, also called trichobacteriosis, is a bacterial infection of the hair shaft, caused by Corynebacterium species, in sweat gland–bearing areas
; it has been described most commonly in the axillary region and is a common but underdiagnosed skin condition.
While initially believed to be uncommon in the inguinal region, a series of papers has described trichomycosis pubis, a particular variant occurring in the inguinal area, and has suggested that the incidence of this disease is underestimated in the general population. The condition is often a marker of poor hygiene.
