Over the last few years, new Malassezia species have been found regularly in Japanese subjects. We isolated another new Malassezia species from a Japanese patient with seborrheic dermatitis (SD), and named it M. yamatoensis. In its physiological characteristics and the utilization of Tween by M. yamatoensis is similar to that of M. furfur and M. dermatis. It is distinguished by its growth temperature. To examine the distribution of the microorganism in the skin of patients with SD and atopic… 
Molecular analysis of Malassezia microflora in seborrheic dermatitis patients: comparison with other diseases and healthy subjects.
TLDR
The results indicate that certain strains of M. restricta occur in the lesional skin of SD patients, and could be distinguished from those collected from HSs, but not from those colleted from AD patients.
Epidemiologic Study of Malassezia Yeasts in Seborrheic Dermatitis Patients by the Analysis of 26S rDNA PCR-RFLP.
TLDR
According to the results of the study, the most frequently isolated species was M. restricta, and there was no statistically significant difference in the distribution of Malassezia species between the SD patients and healthy control groups.

Malassezia spp. which normally colonize on the skin surface, are known as being either the cause or an exacerbating factor in a variety of skin conditions, including pityriasis versicolor,
Distribution of Malassezia species in Mexican seborrheic dermatitis patients
TLDR
The goal of this study was to analyze the prevalence of Malassezia species in the skin of SD patients by molecular methods in order to establish their distribution according to the severity of the disease in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.
Identification of Malassezia species in the facial lesions of Chinese seborrhoeic dermatitis patients based on DNA sequencing
TLDR
Overall, this study revealed that while M. furfur is the predominant Malassezia species in Chinese SD patients, there is no significant difference in the distribution of MalasseZia species between ChineseSD patients and healthy individuals.
Identification of Malassezia species isolated from Iranian seborrhoeic dermatitis patients.
TLDR
The results of this study showed high recovery rate of Malassezia species on lesions of patients with SED, suggesting it might be playing a causative role in the etiology of this disease.
Malassezia arunalokei sp. nov., a Novel Yeast Species Isolated from Seborrheic Dermatitis Patients and Healthy Individuals from India
TLDR
A new species of Malassezia is proposed, namely, M. arunalokei sp.
Distribution of Malassezia species on the skin of patients with atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, and healthy volunteers assessed by conventional and molecular identification methods
TLDR
This study provides an important insight into the species composition of Malassezia microbiota in human skin, with the predominance of M. sympodialis in both normal and pathologic skin, contrasts with other European countries.
Distribution of Malassezia Species in Patients with Pityriasis versicolor Compared with Healthy Individuals in Yazd, Iran
TLDR
The highest prevalence of PV in this study was observed in the 20 – 39 years old group, suggesting that the peak of the infection is coincided with ages and increasing sebum production in the highest level.
Identification of Malassezia pachydermatis from healthy and diseased human skin.
TLDR
The results of this study confirm that M. pachydermatis is not a member of the normal human flora and its presence on human skin is rare and indicates transmission from an external source.

Description of a New Yeast Species, Malassezia japonica, and Its Detection in Patients with Atopic Dermatitis and Healthy Subjects
TLDR
This species was part of the microflora in both patients with AD and healthy subjects, and analysis of the D1/D2 26S ribosomal DNA and internal transcribed spacer region sequences of the isolates suggested that they are new members of the genus Malassezia.
Identification of Malassezia species isolated from patients with seborrhoeic dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, pityriasis versicolor and normal subjects.
TLDR
The data suggest that the pathogenic species of pityriasis versicolor is M. globosa, and M. furfur and/or M. Globosa may be pathogens of seborrhoeic dermatitis.
Molecular Analysis of Malassezia Microflora on the Skin of Atopic Dermatitis Patients and Healthy Subjects
ABSTRACT Members of the genus Malassezia, lipophilic yeasts, are considered to be one of the exacerbating factors in atopic dermatitis (AD). We examined variation in cutaneous colonization by
Isolation of Malassezia globosa and M. sympodialis from patients with pityriasis versicolor in Spain
TLDR
Results confirmed M. globosa as the main agent of pityriasis versicolor and M. sympodialis as the second agent in importance.
Quantitative culture of Malassezia species from different body sites of individuals with or without dermatoses.
TLDR
Malassezia sympodialis was the most common species associated with AD and PV patients and healthy control subjects, while M. globosa was most frequently isolated from PS and SD patients.
Epidemiology of Malassezia yeasts associated with pityriasis versicolor in Ontario, Canada.
TLDR
Leeming-Notman medium is used to culture patient skin specimens showing positive evidence of Malassezia infection in direct microscopy to obtain a better understanding of the contribution of individual MalasseZia species to the epidemiology of pityriasis (tinea) versicolor.
New Yeast Species, Malassezia dermatis, Isolated from Patients with Atopic Dermatitis
TLDR
Analysis of ribosomal DNA sequences suggested that the isolates found in AD patients belonged to the genus Malassezia, and they did not grow in Sabouraud dextrose agar but utilized specific concentrations of Tween 20, 40, 60, and 80 as a lipid source.
Immunology of Diseases Associated with Malassezia Species
TLDR
The finding that the genus Malassezia is immunomodulatory is important in understanding its ability to cause disease, and the lipid-rich layer around the yeast appears to be pivotal in this alteration of phenotype.
Sequence Diversity of the Intergenic Spacer Region of the rRNA Gene of Malassezia globosa Colonizing the Skin of Patients with Atopic Dermatitis and Healthy Individuals
TLDR
Findings suggest that a specific genotype of M. globosa may play a significant role in AD, although M. Globosa commonly colonizes both AD patients and healthy subjects.
Malassezia nana sp. nov., a novel lipid-dependent yeast species isolated from animals.
TLDR
Five isolates of a novel species of the yeast genus Malassezia were isolated from animals in Japan and Brazil and showed that they were conspecific and belonged to the genus Malasseszia, which resembles M. dermatis and M. sympodialis, but can be distinguished from these species by its inability to use Cremophor EL as the sole lipid source and to hydrolyse aesculin.
