Objective: To compare the efficacy of oral itraconazole with griseofulvin for tinea corporis treatment at Bac Ninh Dermatologic Hospital. Subject and method: A randomized, comparative and prospective study was conducted to compare 66 patients with tinea corporis at Bac Ninh Dermatologic Hospital. These patients were divided into 2 groups: Group 1: Consisted of 31 patients treated with oral Itraconazole (Kbat), and Group 2: Had 35 patients treated with oral Griseofulvin. Result: The result of tinea corporis treatment both clinically and microscopically was the same in two groups. The adverse effects were most seen in the group treated with oral Itraconazole, and the cost for treatment in the Itraconazole group was 7 times higher than in the Griseofulvin group. Conclusion: Oral griseofulvin for tinea corporis was effective and not too pricey.
