In the present study, we evaluated the occurrence of Malassezia spp. from superficial areas (ear, anus, forehead and back) in 100 healthy pigs. All cultures from anus, forehead and back were negative for Malassezia spp. A total of 73% of pigs were colonized by Malassezia yeasts in the external ear canals. We isolated only lipid-dependent species (Malassezia sympodialis 58%, Malassezia slooffiae 30%). This study evaluates the occurrence of Malassezia spp. in pigs since the taxonomic revision in 1996.
