Twenty five cases of pityriasis versicolor and 25 cases of pityrosporum folliculitis were selected for this study. Skin scrapings in 10% potassium hydroxide showed spores and hyphae in all 25 cases of PV. Smears from PF showed Gram positive spores in all 25 cases and in addition few short hyphae in 3 cases. Initially IgM and Later both IgM and IgG were raised. Similar response was seen in PF initially and later IgM, IgG and IgA all were raised in PF. Though antibody levels were slightly higher in PF, yet basically the pattern was similar in PV and PF.
