Abstract

species, which are skin colonizers, are being debated as to their pathogenic role in various cutaneous diseases. Species identification of is important as particular species have been implicated in or associated with specific diseases. relatively newly described species, has not been completely characterized owing to the rarity of its isolation. In the present study we describe phenotypic and molecular characterization of six strains isolated from patients with psoriasis vulgaris. In contrast to the physiological and biochemical properties of the type strain, CBS9348, all our isolates assimilated Tween 20 and showed positive β-glucosidase activity, and the Cremophor EL utilization test was negative. However, the sequences of the D1/D2 region of rDNA, ITS2 and IGS1 regions of all our isolates clustered with the type strain of .
