Abstract

MEDEIROS, Karina Bittencourt; LANDEIRO, Luana Gomes; DINIZ, Lucia Martins  and  FALQUETO, Aloísio. Disseminated cutaneous sporotrichosis associated with ocular lesion in an immunocompetent patient. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2016, vol.91, n.4, pp.537-539. ISSN 0365-0596.  https://doi.org/10.1590/abd1806-4841.20164859.

A 59-year-old female patient, previously healthy, immunocompetent, presented left bulbar conjunctiva lesions and nodular-ulcerated lesions on the arms and cervical region, besides left cervical and retroauricular lymphadenopathy. She had previous contact with domestic cats that excoriated her face. The diagnosis was conclusive of disseminated sporotrichosis through clinical and epidemiological history and cultures of skin and ocular secretions. It evolved with good response to oral antifungal therapy.

Keywords : Eye infections, fungal; Mycoses; Sporotrichosis.
