Pityriasis versicolor is a superficial fungal infection of the skin, characterized by pigmentary changes secondary to the colonization of the stratum corneum by a lipophilic dimorphic fungus known as Malassezia sp. Of this genus, 7 species known as the causative agent of pityriasis versicolor, the most frequently isolated species is M. Globosa. This skin disease occurs worldwide but predominates in the tropical, warm, and humid climate. Malassezia sp classified as dimorphic fungi since it behave...
