Metadata[+] Show full item record
Griseofulvin is more effective than terbinafine for treating tinea capitis caused by Microsporum species, and terbinafine is more effective than griseofulvin for Trichophyton species (SOR: B, subgroup analysis within a meta-analysis). The relative potencies of itraconazole and fluconazole against tinea capitis caused by Trichophyton are unclear.
