The lipophilic yeast Malassezia pachydermatis is part of the normal skin flora of most warm-blooded organisms. In a number of surveys it could be demonstrated that this yeast species might be involved in different skin diseases like seborrhoeic dermatitis, especially in dogs and cats. In order to look for an alternative therapeutic agent to the commonly used antimycotic and antiseptic synthetic substances the in vitro activity of Australian tea tree oil, the essential oil of Melaleuca… Expand
Antifungal activity of tea tree oil from Melaleuca alternifolia against Trichophyton equinum: an in vivo assay.
TLDR
A randomized open clinical trial was carried out on 60 thoroughbred breeding horses affected by equine ringworm, finding the therapeutic protocol appears to be effective and versatile, being applicable immediately after physical examination, prior to have the laboratory response. Expand
Antifungal in vitro Activity of Essential Oils against Clinical Isolates of Malassezia pachydermatis from Canine Ears: A Report from a Practice Laboratory
TLDR
Most EOs showed in vitro efficacy against M. pachydermatis, and the most potential EO was lemon grass, while cinnamon leaf, clove, manuka, Indian melissa, oregano, palmarosa, and winter savory oil exhibited a strong antifungal activity. Expand
Antimicrobial effects of topical skin cream containing natural oil mixtures against Staphylococcus pseudintermedius and Malassezia pachydermatis.
TLDR
The results suggest that the skin cream tested here can be used as a substitute for generally used antibiotic/antifungal agents. Expand
Antimycotic Activity of Some Aromatic Plants Essential Oils Against Canine Isolates of Malassezia pachydermatis: An in vitro Assay
TLDR
The effectiveness, manageability and pleasant organoleptic properties of O. vulgare, T. serpillum, O. piperita EOs make them advisable as promising new natural antifungal drugs in the management of M. pachydermatis otitis in dog. Expand
In vitro effectiveness of tea tree oil against Trichophyton equinum
TLDR
The present findings indicate a lesser in vitro susceptibility of T. equinum, to TTO, compared to other results reported in literature. Expand
Phytotherapy of chronic dermatitis and pruritus of dogs with a topical preparation containing tea tree oil (Bogaskin).
TLDR
The tested study medication (Bogaskin) can be considered an alternative for uncomplicated and localised dermatitis in dogs and might allow reduction of other pharmaceutical products, perhaps even replace standard therapy. Expand
Use of Essential Oils in Veterinary Medicine to Combat Bacterial and Fungal Infections
TLDR
The use of EOs in therapy of companion and farm animals should follow careful studies on the toxicity of these natural products in relation to animal species and route of administration, and an aromatogram should be executed to choose the oil with the best antimicrobial activity. Expand
Effects of beta-thujaplicin on anti-Malassezia pachydermatis remedy for canine otitis externa.
The antifungal activity of beta-thujaplicin was evaluated against 51 Malassezia pachydermatis strains isolated from canine ear canals with or without otitis externa. For comparison, sensitivity testsExpand

Human infections due to Malassezia spp.
TLDR
Better understanding of how these organisms cause disease awaits the development of a useful typing scheme for epidemiologic studies and further studies on microbial virulence factors and the role of the immune response in pathogenesis. Expand
An evaluation of the in vitro activity of terbinafine.
TLDR
The data suggest that terbinafine, in addition to its potent activity against dermatophytes, is considerably effective against a broad range ofYeasts and filamentous fungi in vitro, and investigations concerning its antifungal activity in vivo should be pursued. Expand
Malassezia pachydermatis: a review.
TLDR
Skin colonization is common in pet carnivores which consequently constitute a source of M. pachydermatis for susceptible humans and the development of efficient typing systems should allow better understanding of the transmission mechanisms. Expand
In vitro activity of terbinafine against clinical isolates of dermatophytes.
TLDR
A broth macrodilution method following the recommendations established by the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards was employed for testing terbinafine against 20 clinical isolates of dermatophytes belonging to seven species, finding no differences in susceptibilities between strains isolated from HIV-positive and -negative individuals.

TLDR
The susceptibility of 64 Malassezia furfur isolates to Melaleuca alternifolia oil was determined, indicating that tea tree oil may be useful in the treatment of skin conditions involving M. furfur. Expand
Pharmaceutical and medicinal aspects of Australian tea tree oil.
TLDR
The essential tea tree oil has been widely used in modern medicine and cosmetics in recent years, and there are clinical data to show the benefical effects, but dose-response studies are lacking. Expand
Comparison of media and conditions of incubation for the quantitative culture of Malassezia pachydermatis from canine skin.
TLDR
Fifty-five swab-wash specimens from dogs were cultured at 32 degrees C on Sabouraud's dextrose agar either with or without 1 per cent Tween 80 and the counts of Malassezia pachydermatis were not significantly different after three or seven days of incubation. Expand
Studies on the isolation, growth and maintenance of Malassezia pachydermatis
TLDR
A dextrose nutrient medium with 1.5% yeast extract turned out to be the most favourable medium for the development of Malassezia pachydermatis and addition of Tween 80 significantly enhanced the isolation of this yeast from clinical materials. Expand

TLDR
A survey was done on otitis externa in animals in Israel and only 1 camel out of 186 had OtitisExterna associated with Pityrosporum pachydermatis infection. Expand
The genus Malassezia with description of four new species
TLDR
The genus Malassezia has been revised using morphology, ultrastructure, physiology and molecular biology to include seven species comprising the three former taxa M. furfur, M. pachydermatis and M. sympodialis, and four new taxa. Expand
