Characterization of Malassezia furfur and its control by using plant extracts



Characterization of Malassezia furfur and its control by using plant extracts



Indian Journal of Dermatology 51(2): 145-148



Malassezia furfur, a lipophilic, dimorphic and yeast-like fungus, occurring in human skin as an opportunistic pathogen, causes diseases such as dandruff, pityriasis versicolar and seborrhoeic dermatitis. Suitable media for culturing the organism were standardized. A modified medium for the culturing of M. furfur has been proposed. Growth of the fungus was also determined in the presence of different carbon sources under the influence of different temperature, pH and salinity.
