Abstract

Malassezia furfur is a saprophytic fungus that is part of the normal cutaneous microflora of adults. It frequently causes tinea versicolor and less often, a distinctive folliculitis. In infants and occasionally in adults the fungus is associated with a sepsis syndrome that heralds a deep-seated infection. These entities, their diagnosis, and their treatment are discussed.
