Dermatophytosis (ringworm) is an important feline skin disease primarily caused by the dermatophyte genera Microsporum and Trichophyton which may be affected by climate. Studying the prevalence of dermatophytosis on cats in Indonesia and Turkey was the main purpose of this article review. The articles reviewed were two articles from Turkey published consecutively on year 2011 and 2016, and an article from Indonesia published on year 2017. The findings showed that the prevalence of dermatophytosis in Indonesia was 17/30 (56.7%) while Turkey was 52/428 (12.1%). The age of the infected animals was the only predictor that had a major effect on the incidence of dermatophytosis on cats, as shown by the excellent positive cases of cats under one year of age relative to other age groups. In conclusion, the prevalence of dermatophytosis on cats in Turkey was slightly lower compared to the prevalence of feline dermatophytosis in subtropical country (Indonesia) and the variations may be attributed to the variation in humidity and temperature faced in both countries.
