Methods: The subjects were 20 AD males and 47 AD females. Samples were collected from lesion and nonlesion areas on the face and upper trunk of AD patients. Malassezia DNA was analyzed using a real-time PCR system. Results: The cutaneous Malassezia microbiota in AD patients differed by gender, body part and analytical method.
