Abstract | Dermatophytoses is a group of specific diseases caused by the dermatomycetes fungi. These diseases are common in humans and animals and are found ubiquitously. Recently, there have been increased numbers of fungal agents causing skin mycoses. This work aimed at the identification of dermatomycoses pathogens in humans and animals circulating in the territory of Kazakhstan. A total of 509 samples of pathological material from animals and human volunteers from various regions of Kazakhstan have been studied. As a result, 167 pure cultures of fungi were isolated, and their cultural and morphological characteristics were studied. A total of 80 strains of dermatomycetes, yeasts, and molds have been identified, including the genetic one. The most frequent were molds–64.3 %, dermatomycetes–22 %, and yeast–13.7 %. Changes had been noted in the range of dermatophytoses pathogens in humans and animals in the Republic of Kazakhstan. Pathogens of dermatophytoses in animals and humans were mold saprophytic fungi (64.3 %), dermatomycetes (22 %), and yeasts (13.7 %). The widest range of atypical pathogens was detected in the imported cattle.
