Abstract

イヌから分離されるマラセチアは <I>Malassezia pachydermatis</I> が主体であり,その関与が予想される "マラセチア皮膚炎" と呼ばれる疾患がある.皮疹は脂漏部位の鱗屑を伴う比較的境界明瞭な紅斑を特徴とし,慢性経過を辿ると苔癬化や色素沈着を認める.その臨床はヒトの脂漏性皮膚炎に相当している.今後,ヒトと動物に共通する疾患としてその相違点を明らかにすることで,この領域における普遍的病態の理解を深めることが可能と推察された.

<I>Malassezia pachydermatis</I> is the major species in <I>Malassezia</I> isolated from dogs, and there is a presumably <I>Malassezia</I>-associated skin disease,"<I>Malassezia</I> dermatitis" in the dog. The skin lesion is characterized by relatively demarcated erythema with some scaling at the sebum-rich areas, in which lichenification and hyperpigmentation could be involved in the chronic stage. The clinical features suggest that it corresponds to seborrheic dermatitis in humans. Hence, it might be possible to identify essential pathogenesis of the disease by clarifying its differences in humans and animals as a shared disease.
