“…6). On periodic acid-Schiff (PAS)-stained sections, the presence of Malassezia yeasts becomes evident in the form of small spherical-to-oval yeast organisms without the regular observation of hyphae (250). There seems to be some predisposition to the development of Malassezia folliculitis along with other Malassezia-associated diseases like pityriasis versicolor and seborrheic dermatitis (99).…”

“…49 The inflammatory response may be a result, in part, of the ability of the Malassezia yeasts to hydrolyze triglycerides into free fatty acids. 84,[88][89][90] The hair follicles themselves also have a characteristic appearance; they tend to be dilated and distended and are often full of keratinous material. 83 It has also been suggested that the overgrowth of the yeasts is a secondary occurrence, permitted by the occlusion of the follicle.…”

“…It has been reported to occur in individuals who are immunosuppressed. 90,[92][93][94] Moreover, the eosinophilic folliculitis seen in patients with HIV and AIDS may also be marked by colonization of the follicles with Malassezia yeasts. 95,96 Other predisposing factors are diabetes mellitus, immunosuppression as a result of heart transplant, and the use of broad-spectrum antibiotics.…”

“…Eichstedt [28]first reported an association between Malassezia and pityriasis versicolor in 1846, when he described yeast-like cells in stratum corneum from the skin scales of the patients (table 1). A number of studies have shown that Malassezia is the causative agent of pityriasis versicolor and Pityrosporum folliculitis [29, 30]and plays an important role in the pathogenesis of seborrheic dermatitis and AEDS [9]. …”
