Abstract
It is widely accepted that there is a finite failure rate when treating onychomycosis; a case report from the author serves as an example of multiple failures following treatments of varying duration and combinations, including oral-local, then oral-oral therapies. This article discusses the results obtained by authors who have varied the standard duration of therapy, increased the dosage of the oral antifungal agents, or have used two oral drugs in treating this condition.
