The skin surface is colonized by a wide variety of fungi and bacteria. While many of these organisms, including Malassezia, Candida, Streptococcus and Staphylococcus species, are associated with provocation and/or exacerbation of psoriasis, a detailed analysis of the cutaneous fungal microbiome in psoriatic patients has yet to be performed. To identify the disease-specific fungal microbiota on psoriatic scale samples, fungal rRNA gene sequences from 12 psoriatic patients and 12 healthy controls… CONTINUE READING
