Abstract: The long-term outcome of 111 patients treated with oral terbinafine for toenail onychomycosis with a novel treatment protocol was assessed a median of 138 weeks after entry into the trial. All but three patients had either one or two 12 week courses of terbinafine 250 mg daily. Of the 77 evaluable patients, 72.7% were still classified as responders (i.e. negative mycological culture and at least 3 mm of new unaffected nail growth) on reassessment. The present study shows that a favourable long-term outcome can be achieved in patients who have been treated with at least one 12 week course of terbinafine.
