In this review, we discuss Malassezia folliculitis (MF), which is an inflammation in the hair follicles caused by different Malassezia species. The prevalence of MF in the population worldwide ranges from 1% to 17%. Clinically, it may be difficult to distinguish from acne vulgaris, as it presents as erythematous 2-4 mm large papules and pustules on the back, chest and neck. Adequate diagnostic methods, including microscopy or biopsy, are essential to confirm the MF diagnosis, and to ensure initiation of the appropriate anti-fungal treatment.
