Uncommon presentations of tinea versicolor

The clinician must be aware of variations in location and perform the appropriate diagnostic workup when lesions have the characteristic morphology of TV despite an unusual location.

Vulvar Pityriasis Versicolor in an Immunocompetent Woman

With increased body awareness and the current popularity of pubic hair removal, young women may consult clinicians about color changes on the vulva and clinicians should be aware that vulvar pityriasis versicolor may occur in healthy women with no other skin involvement.

A case of pityriasis versicolor is reported in a renal transplant recipient on penile shaft, which is an unusual area and shows higher incidence of disease but they mostly occur in an expected distribution.

Superficial fungal infections of the male genitalia: A review

The fungal microbiota of the penis are highlighted, the epidemiological characteristics of Candida balanitis, penile pityriasis versicolor, and tinea genitalis are addressed, and the benefits of circumcision on male genital infections are included.

Pityriasis Versicolor in Children and Adolescents: an Update

Although PV is a common disorder, extensive research is necessary to better understand the pathophysiology of the disease, immunological characteristics of the pathogen-host relationship and resources needed to precisely diagnose, treat, and avoid its chronic and recurrent course.

Bilateral areolar and periareolar pityriasis versicolor

An adolescent boy presented with isolated, symmetrical, bilateral areolar and periareolar pityriasis versicolor. This extremely rare condition should be considered in the differential diagnosis of

Genital Pityriasis versicolor though rare, is not very uncommon, and should always be a part of differential diagnosis for such lesions in genital area.

Tinea versicolor: an updated review

This review aims to familiarize physicians with the clinical features, diagnosis and management of tinea versicolor and Selection of antifungal agents depends on several factors, including efficacy, safety, local availability, ease of administration, of and potential drug of the antIFungal agent.

Perineal and genital pityriasis versicolor due to Malassezia globosa

The mechanism of the clinical and histopathological evolution in this patient may be a progressive increase in the levels of TNF-a, thus further suppressing bFGF-b, and thereby causing a cutaneous microenvironment that favours complete depigmentation.

Fine scaly plaques on the vulva of a 2‐year‐old girl

A 2‐year‐old girl presented with pruritic, light‐brown, round, scaly plaques involving the vulvar area that had appeared 3 months before. They had initially appeared as small, flat, flesh‐colored



Penile involvement in pityriasis versicolor.

Pityriasis versicolor of the glans penis.

The patient described above had lesions on the skin and on the glans, and this association has not been reported before, even in such detailed studies as that of Roberts (1968) or El-Hefnawi (1971).

[Pityriasis versicolor--modern views on etiology, pathogenesis and therapy].

Pityriasis versicolor is a superficial chronic fungal infection caused by Pityrisporum species which are normal "inhabitant" of the cutaneous flora and commonly has three clinical forms: papulosquamous, follicular and inverse.

Frequency and spectrum of Malassezia yeasts in the area of the prepuce and glans penis

The frequency and spectrum of lipophilic Malassezia yeasts within the area of the glans penis and preputial space in healthy men, most of whom were uncircumcised, are investigated.

Malassezia and Candida colonisation on glans penis of circumcised men

The results of this study showed that Malassezia species were also colonised like Candida on the glans penis of circumcised males.

Skin samples were taken by swabbing ten different sites and examined for the presence of Malassezia furfur and Malessezia pachydermatis by culture and the strains isolated could be divided on the basis of culture characteristics into three distinct groups.

[Examination of the causative agent of pityriasis versicolor].

This work suggests that M. globosa is the causative agent of PV, and detects Malassezia species without M. pachydermatis and M. nana in the skin of patients with PV.

Circumcision and genital dermatoses.

Most cases ofinflammatory dermatoses were diagnosed in uncircumcised men, suggesting that circumcision protects against inflammatory dermatoses.

Malassezia globosa as the causative agent of pityriasis versicolor

These results support the data previously reported and strongly suggest that M. globosa in its mycelial phase is the causative agent of PV.
