Methylxanthine contains common compounds that widely consumed by human through their present in food, drink and beverages or through involving in pharmaceutical drugs. Dermatophytes were selected to investigate for their ability to utilize three main compounds of methylxanthine as sole source of carbon and nitrogen. Trichophyton mentagrophytes and Epidermophyton floccosum were grown on three types of media: Medium A lacks of carbon source, medium B lacks of nitrogen source and medium C lacks of carbon and nitrogen sources. Two isolated species of dermatophytes revealed well growth on medium A and less on media B and C. Dermatophytes showed ability to use methylxanthine as sole source of carbon and nitrogen with efficiency to use carbon than nitrogen.
