Two supplemented broths (Christensen's urea with 0.1% Tween 80 and 0.5% Tween 40 and RPMI 1640 with 1% glycerol, 1% peptone, 1.8% glucose, and 0.05% Tween 80) were evaluated to determine voriconazole, itraconazole, and ketoconazole MICs for 200 Malassezia sp. isolates. Malassezia globosa and M. restricta were the least susceptible species (MICs at which 90% of the isolates tested were inhibited, 1 to >or=8 microg/ml versus 0.25 to 1 microg/ml).
