This image depicts a view of this patient’s upper and lower back, revealing the presence of a patchy, hypopigmented rash, which was determined to be a case of tinea versicolor, due to an undesignated dermatophytic fungal organism. Usually tinea versicolor is caused by Malassezia spp. fungi, usually, M. globosa, and less often, M. furfur.
