Case Report of International Journal of Case Reports Twins With Endogenous Tinea Versicolor Alen J Salerian MD Organisation: Modern Psychiatry; Address:8 Zaimi street,paleo falero,Athens 17562,Greece  Identical Twins with Endogenous Tinea Versicolor This case report was inspired by recent medical data consistent with the observation that Tinea Versicolor caused by Malassezia Furfur species may be endogenous produced by human body. This case report involves a pair of identical twins –ages 71- who have had recur-rent Tinea Versicolor infections for over six decades. The author of this article twin A, a physician and his brother twin B have in summer months had skin lesions - on chest and upper extremities of round approximately 1 inch wide - diagnosed as tinea versicolor by many doctors in diverse medical settings in different countries since their adolescence.

Twin A who lives in Houston Texas had lived in Los Angeles California and Dahran Saudi Arabia. Twin B who lives in Athens and spent the majority of his adult life in Washington DC. Neither twin reported any association between location and tinea versicolor infections yet they both observed that almost always infections emerged in warmer climates. Both twin A and twin B have been diagnosed with hypertension and hypercholesterolemia well controlled by amlodipine 10 mg and atorvastatin 20 mg respec-tively. Observations Consistent with Endogenous Origin of Malassezia Yeasts A. Malasezia Furfur are not not contagious (1). B. Human genetics. -independent of immune competence - govern Malassezia furfur infections (1). C. Inoculation of Malassezia yeasts into human skin without occlusion does not cause infection (2). D. Infants skin is colonized by malassezia furfur in the first month (3) although amniotic fluid does not harbor malassezia furfur (4), neonate’ skin at birth contains no ...
