FRAMIL, Valéria Maria de Souza et al. Pityriasis versicolor circinata: isolation of Malassezia sympodialis - Case report. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2010, vol.85, n.2, pp.227-228. ISSN 1806-4841. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962010000200015.
The authors report a case of pityriasis versicolor circinata whose isolated etiologic agent was Malassezia sympodialis in a 34-year-old woman. The isolation and identification of Malassezia sympodialis were accomplished with modified Dixon's agar, and the molecular method used to confirm the species was polymerase chain reaction and restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis (PCR-RFLP).
