FURTADO, Letícia de Oliveira et al. Ocular sporotrichosis: atypical manifestations. Rev. bras.oftalmol. [online]. 2019, vol.78, n.1, pp.59-61. ISSN 0034-7280.

Human and animal sporotrichosis is an infection caused by the dimorphic fungus Sporothrix schenckii, which is classified from subacute to chronic. Ocular sporotrichosis has been highlighted due to the epidemic of urban sporotrichosis faced by the state of Rio de Janeiro in the last decade and presents classically as granulomatous conjunctivitis, but atypical forms may occur. This article aims to report two atypical cases of ocular sporotrichosis in immunocompetent patients, both presenting a clinical picture compatible with Parinaud oculoglandular syndrome associated with dacryocystitis in one case and presumably to choroiditis in the other case.

Keywords : Sporotrichosis; Ocular motility disorders; Choriditis; Dacryocystitis.
