Cutaneous lymphatic sporotrichosis treated with ketoconazole - report of an infection acquired in the United Kingdom



Cutaneous lymphatic sporotrichosis treated with ketoconazole - report of an infection acquired in the United Kingdom



Clinical and Experimental Dermatology 9(6): 599-603



A case in a 66-yr-old retired gardener is reported. The patient developed a painless nodule on the dorsum of the left wrist which over a 6-week period enlarged, ulcerated and was followed by further lesions on the arm. The patient recalled a trivial injury from a cactus spine prior to the onset of the first lesion. Cultures of a biopsy specimen yielded Sporothrix schenckii. Oral ketoconazole (200 mg twice daily) therapy was initiated. Within 2 weeks the lesions had decreased in size and after 6 months all the lesions had cleared and no relapse had occurred on a subsequent follow-up. Sporotrichosis is discussed.
