Description:This Petri culture plate had contained a Sabouraud dextrose agar medium that had been inoculated with Microsporum canis, which had grown a colony that exhibited a glabrous, or smooth surfaced beige-colored colony.
M. canis, a zoophilic dermatophyte often found in cats and dogs, is a common cause of tinea corporis and tinea capitis in humans. Other dermatophytes are included in the genera Epidermophyton and Trichophyton.
