Abstract

We present four cases of interdigital tinea pedis in Italian tourists which was probably acquired in Turkish mosques and holy Muslim places. In all patients mycological examinations were positive for Trichophyton rubrum. All patients were successfully treated with bifonazole cream (one application/day for three weeks). It is advisable for tourists to wear socks when visiting mosques and holy Muslim places.
