  The aim of this study was to examine the environmental factors and selected antifungal which affect arthroconidia production in T. verrucosum, T. violaseum, Epidermophyton floccosum, T. rubrum and T. mentagrophytes. Arthroconidia production was studied on different media and under conditions of varying temperature, pH and CO2 concentrations. The effect of the addition of antifungal to media was also examined. Arthroconidia formation was occurred optimally on sabouraud dextrose agar under CO2 10% tension at 37°C at pH 7.5 and was maximal at 10 days. At 42°C and in media plus NaCl 3% or more than it, no growth occurred. The rate of arthroconidia production was different in these species. Griseofulvin, clotrimazole and betamethasone induced the formation of arthroconidia and itraconazole and particularly terbinafin decrease the rate of arthroconidia production. This result emphasis to effective role of environmental factors and some of antifungals on arthroconidia formation. Also, this result may be clinically significant, if sufficiently fungicidal concentrations are not attained in some areas of the lesion, the antifungal themselves may enhance the conversion of hyphea to arthroconidia.
