Abstract

The various agents of the superficial mycoses have been recognized for more than a century as causes of mild diseases affecting humankind. Two of these, Malassezia furfur and Trichosporon beigelii, are ubiquitous organisms now known to be opportunistic pathogens in susceptible patient populations. The clinical manifestation, pathogenesis, and treatment of the common skin presentation of these and the other superficial mycoses are reviewed.
