Microsporum nanum is a distinct species of Microsporum best characterized by its dwarf macroconidia. On the basis of recent reports, it appears to be a fairly common pathogen in swine. The two cases of M nanum infections reported in this paper occurred in swine farmers and are the ninth and tenth reported cases in man. The results of our epidemiological studies are discussed.
