Abstract

Sporotrichosis is uncommon in Canadian urban centers. Lymphocutaneous and fixed cutaneous are the most common cutaneous forms of the disease, typically seen in the upper extremily in adult patients. History usually reveals a puncture injury contaminated with soil. Lesions are refractory to commonly used antibiotics. Cultures of biopsy specimens reliably grow the fungus Sporothrix schenkii. First line treatment is oral potassium iodide. We have reviewed a series of 7 cases from various Toronto teaching hospitals and compared them to the world literature.
