Drug Drug of Choice for Tinea Capitis?

Kaplan Notes is saying oral Terbinafine or Itraconazole While Kaplan Qbank is saying oral Griseofulvin?
Which one is correct for God's sake!

Your Kaplan Qbank must be outdated. The latest recommendation is terbinafine or itraconazole. Griseofulvin was previously the drug of choice.

Yea, I'd agree with the 'ocanazole's".
