Patients in this study were already receiving antiretroviral therapy for more than 2 years presented clinically with skin malaise previously treated unsuccessfully with conventional antifungal and chemotherapeutic agents. An exit pool system where patients consented to be involved in the study was applied. One hundred (100) out of five hundred and thirty (530) HIV/AIDS patients screened, representing 18.7%, were found with cutaneous infectious fungal infections. Of the 100 HIV/AIDS infected patients with cutaneous infectious fungal infections; Tinea pedis and Tinea unguium had prevalence rate of 60%, Tinea capitis 25%, Tinea corporis 15% respectively.
