History and Objectives: Since no previous mycological study has been conducted in Kashan’s schools, the present study was designed in order to determine the prevalence of fungal infection and their causes in the region.

Materials and Methods: 3450 students were examined and suspected skin lesions were inspected carefully and samples were collected, cultured and cleared by KOH.

Results: From 426 cases with probable infection, 385 cases (11.16%) were shown to be infected (100 males, 285 females). Pityrosporosis (207), trichomycosis axillaris (135), tinea versicolor (17) and otomycosis (1) were the most frequent type of mycoses. The cutaneous mycoses included tinea capitis (3) and onychomycosis (2).

Conclusion: On the basis of the present study, it is suggested that future descriptive as well as analytical studies be conducted in these groups of subjects.

Keywords: Tinea capitis, Onychomycosis, Otomycosis
