Onychomycosis is Infection of the toenails and/or finger nails caused by fungi mainly dermatophytes, non-dermatophyte molds and yeast. Most commonly used diagnostic modalities include KOH mount direct microscopy, Fungal culture and histopathological examination using PAS stain. In our study PAS stain was compared with Fungal culture and PAS was the most sensitive (75%) diagnostic modality for onychomycosis and fungal culture was 31.25%.
