Abstract

FRAMIL, Valéria Maria de Souza et al. Pityriasis versicolor: isolation and identification of the main species. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2010, vol.85, n.1, pp. 111-114. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962010000100021.

Species of the genus Malassezia isolated were: Malassezia sympodialis (16.66%), Malassezia furfur (12.50%), Malassezia globosa (11.45%), and Malassezia slooffiae (2.10%). Malassezia sympodialis predominated in the study. The species of Malassezia identified did not show correlation with clinical variants and with the distribution of pityriasis versicolor lesions in relation to areas of the body.

Keywords : Isolation; Malassezia; Pityriasis; Yeast.
