Localized lymphatic sporotrichosis after fish-induced injury (Tilapia sp.)



Localized lymphatic sporotrichosis after fish-induced injury (Tilapia sp.)



Medical Mycology 40(4): 425-427



Localized lymphatic sporotrichosis generally develops after the fungus Sporothrix schenckii is traumatically introduced into skin or mucosa by contaminated plant material. An 18-year-old male fisherman from Sao Paulo, Brazil, was injured by spines of the dorsal fin of a fish on the left 3rd finger. The lesion became ulcerated, oedematous and suppurative and did not respond to tetracycline and cephalexin. 15 days after the accident, a nodular lymphangitic pattern of swelling was observed.
