“…Tinea versicolor infection was observed in 13.3% of our patients compared to 0.5% in the general population. Boardman and Malkinson [15] and Koranda ct al. [2] observed tinea versicolor infection in 9.4 and 18% of patients, respectively.…”

“…The condition occurs mainly between adolescence and middle age, when the sebaceous glands are more active (134), although it has also been reported in children (11,93,284,479) and the elderly (109,285). Predisposing factors include a "genetic susceptibility" (77,175), illness or malnutrition (77), increased plasma cortisol level (57,77,237), and high ambient temperature and humidity (127). The incidence in temperate climates is around 1% (134,183), but incidences as high as 40 to 60% have been reported in tropical climates (209).…”

“…Since some conjugal cases of tinea versicolor do occur (215), there may be some degree of infectivity of the responsible organism for normal persons. This infection has been reported to be more frequent in steroidtreated patients, those with Cushing's disease, those undergoing immunosuppression for renal transplantation, and persons who are severely malnourished (29,46,77,156). Genetic susceptibility has also been postulated for tinea versicolor in that infections in relatives occur at a higher than expected rate (35,108,215).…”
