The yeast Malassezia furfur, also known as Pityrosporum orbiculare (ovale), is part of the normal microflora of the human skin but has also been associated with different skin diseases including atopic dermatitis. More than 50% of atopic dermatitis patients have positive skin test and specific IgE to M. furfur extracts; however, the pathophysiologic role of these IgE-mediated reactions in the development of the disease remains unknown. The yeast is able to produce a wide panel of IgE-binding… CONTINUE READING
