The present article reports on the laboratory examination of skin scraping sample collected from a camel clinically infected with dermatophyte infection. The samples were examined by direct microscopical examination by placing the skin scrapings and/or hairs in 20% KOH on a glass slide and gentle heating, without boiling. The dermatophyte identification was made based on the colony characteristics and microscopic features of the fungal isolates according to the methods. The present study revealed the presence of superficial dermatophyte skin infection in the affected camel. The recommended therapy was suggested to the T.V.C.C. for administration to the camel in divided doses on alternate daily intervals preferably in mixed preparations.

Keywords: Superficial dermatophyte skin infection,Skin scraping.
