Extracellular enzymatic activity of different species of Malassezia spp was evaluated. Thirty-three isolates of animal origin (dogs and cats) and stock culture samples were studied. Twenty isolates of M. pachydermatis, 8 of M. furfur, 2 of M. sympodialis and M. globosa and one of M. restricta, M. obtusa and M. slooffiae were examined. The enzymatic activity was investigated using Api Zym system. The enzymatic patterns showed light differences. Esterase lipase, Phosphatase acid and Naphtol-AS-BI-phosphohydrolase were produced in significant amounts from most isolates excepted for M. restricta, confirming the limited enzymatic activity of this species. Data obtained from the other new species described after the revision of the genus, appear to be quite homogeneous. Dixon's broth appeared to be a valid medium for the growth of all Malassezia spp.
