Department of Dermatology, Rasool Akram Medical Complex Clinical Research Development Center (RCRDC), School of Medicine, Iran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

With dermatologic side effects being fairly prevalent following vaccination against COVID-19, and the multitude of studies aiming to report and analyze these adverse events, the need for an extensive investigation on previous studies seemed urgent, in order to provide a thorough body of information about these post-COVID-19 immunization mucocutaneous reactions. To achieve this goal, a comprehensive electronic search was performed through the international databases including Medline (PubMed), Scopus, Cochrane, Web of science, and Google scholar on July 12, 2021, and all articles regarding mucocutaneous manifestations and considerations after COVID-19 vaccine administration were retrieved using the following keywords: COVID-19 vaccine, dermatology considerations and mucocutaneous manifestations. A total of 917 records were retrieved and a final number of 180 articles were included in data extraction. Read More

Department of Infectious Diseases, Nagoya University Hospital, Aichi, Japan; Department of Infectious Diseases, Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine, Aichi, Japan.

Malassezia furfur is a lipophilic, yeast-like fungus that forms part of the normal human skin microflora and is associated with a wide range of infections, such as pityriasis versicolor, folliculitis, and systemic infections in immunocompromised patients. Although matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry has enabled rapid identification of Malassezia species, it is still a challenge to diagnose systemic infections because Malassezia fungemia can often be missed by automated blood culture systems. We report a case in which M. Read More
