Forty patients with tinea pedis were treated for six weeks in a double-blind study with a tolciclate or placebo solution. The tolciclate solution demonstrated moderate efficacy compared with placebo. The finding of positive KOH preparations in a significant number of tolciclate-treated patients with persistently negative cultures suggests that the vehicle used (polyethylene glycol-400) may not provide adequate penetration of this effective antifungal agent. No adverse effects were noted.
