Humoral immune response against soluble and fractionate antigens in experimental sporotrichosis. Mycological and clinical cure was achieved after 2 months of treatment. These characteristics, however, do not differentiate the new described species on the Sporothrix complex.

Geographic Distribution At the beginning of the last century, sporotrichosis was a common disease in France; it declined after 2 decades and today sporadically appears in Europe.

Sequence analysis of the chitin synthase Ciagnostico gene of the Dutch elm pathogen Ophiostoma novo-ulmi indicates a close association with the human pathogen Sporothrix schenckii. Potassium iodide and itraconazole are contraindicated in pregnant women.

Sporothrix brasiliensisSporothrix mexicanaSporothrix globosaand S. These analyses have been adopted in several studies with S. MICs and minimum fungicidal concentrations of amphotericin B, itraconazole, posaconazole and terbinafine in Sporothrix schenckii.

This antigen was described by Mendoza and collaborators and had no cross-reaction with antigens and serum samples from patients with coccidioidomycosis, histoplasmosis, or paracoccidioidomycosis.


Identification key for Sporothrix species of clinical interest, based on morphological and phenotypic tests described by Marimon and collaborators Several studies have been conducted in an attempt to understand why sporotrichosis has reached epidemic proportions in Rio de Janeiro as well as the reason for the high susceptibility of cats to infection by Sporothrix— There are studies showing different results for the same antifungal agent according to geographic area, the species of Sporothrixand the method used 988 The ergosterol peroxide, found in a pathogenic fungus for the first time in S.

Recently a kDa glycoprotein from an S.

Clin Infect Dis ; Intermittent treatment pulses diaynostico itraconazole. Disseminated sporotrichosis mimicking sarcoidosis. Besides intact polymorphonuclear cells, granulomas in sporotrichosis usually contain cellular debris, caseous material, giant and epithelioid cell lymphocytes, plasmocytes, and fibroblasts as well as S.

Sporothrix schenckii and Sporotrichosis

According to the location of the lesions, sporotrichosis can be classified into cutaneous, mucosal, and extracutaneous forms. Molecular identification of Sporothrix species In the last few years, the development of DNA-based methods to identify fungal isolates has led to a decrease in the time-consuming step of morphological identification, while maintaining or improving the specificity, accuracy and sensitivity.


Itraconazole has been used effectively and safely in most cases of sporotrichosis, with low toxicity and good tolerance, even in long-term treatments. The chemical structures of fungal cell wall polysaccharides and glycoproteins have been studied basically because of the knowledge of the antigenic structures of human pathogens Susceptibility studies concerning good in vitro activity of terbinafine and posaconazole against Sporothrix schenckii have been encouraging Centers for Disease Control and Prevention The fungus thrives in soil plentiful in cellulose, with a pH range from 3.

Sporotrichin Skin Test The cutaneous sporotrichin skin test detects delayed hypersensitivity, i. After the phagocytosis of S. Sporotrichosis, which is caused by the dimorphic fungus Sporothrix schenckiiis currently distributed throughout the world, especially in tropical and subtropical zones.

Of particular interest is a glycoprotein of 70 kDa isolated from the cell wall diagnpstico the S. A KOH mount of a tissue fragment from a cat with sporotrichosis, showing cigar-shaped arrow and budding dashed arrow S.
