Sporotrichosis Sporotrichosis - Symptoms, diagnosis and treatment | BMJ Best Practice You'll need a subscription to access all of BMJ Best Practice Search  Sporotrichosis Last reviewed: February 2019 Last updated: March 2018 Summary Endemic mycosis with worldwide distribution caused by the dimorphic fungus Sporothrix schenckii . The vast majority of sporotrichosis infections are lymphocutaneous or fixed cutaneous forms, although osteoarticular, pulmonary, meningeal, and disseminated (...) sporotrichosis may occur, especially in patients with diabetes, alcoholism, AIDS, and haematological malignancies, but also in normal hosts. Lymphocutaneous sporotrichosis is caused by traumatic inoculation of the fungus into the skin and results in an initial nodular lesion that usually ulcerates, which is followed by ascending nodular lymphangitis. The definitive test for diagnosis of lymphocutaneous sporotrichosis is culture of the fungus from skin lesions. Because of their non-specific presentation

3. Co-infection with feline retrovirus is related to changes in immunological parameters of cats with sporotrichosis. (PubMed)

Co-infection with feline retrovirus is related to changes in immunological parameters of cats with sporotrichosis. Feline sporotrichosis due to Sporothrix brasiliensis is frequently severe and often correlated to zoonotic transmission. Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) cause immunodeficiency in cats; no association has been identified with critical cases of sporotrichosis. Moreover, the cytokine profile in Sporothrix-infected cats and a potential impact (...) of retrovirus co-infections on their immunity is unknown. This study assessed immunological parameters in cats with sporotrichosis with and without FIV or FeLV co-infection. FeLV infection was detected by antigen ELISA and by provirus PCR. FIV infection was investigated through ELISA and Western blot. Cytokine transcription (IFN-γ, IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, IL-10, IL-12, TNF-α) was quantified using RT-qPCR and lymphocyte subpopulations (CD4, CD8, CD5 and CD21) were assessed by flow cytometry. Thirty cats

4. Ocular sporotrichosis: A frequently misdiagnosed cause of granulomatous conjunctivitis in epidemic areas (PubMed)

Ocular sporotrichosis: A frequently misdiagnosed cause of granulomatous conjunctivitis in epidemic areas Sporotrichosis is a subcutaneous mycosis caused by Sporothrix sp., a dimorphic fungus. Although the cutaneous form is the most frequent form, the ocular presentation has been increasingly diagnosed in epidemic areas. We describe three cases of ocular sporotrichosis with the involvement of the ocular adnexa due to autoinoculation without trauma with successful antifungal treatment.Patient 1 (...) evolution. Specimens were obtained from the lesions of the three patients, and the cultures were positive for Sporothrix sp. The three cases were diagnosed as ocular sporotrichosis and were successfully treated with itraconazole (200-400 mg/d). Two of the three patients developed sequelae such as conjunctival fibrosis and symblepharon.We emphasize the importance of the ophthalmologist being familiar with the diagnosis and management of this rare and frequently misdiagnosed form of sporotrichosis.

5. Mannose-Binding Lectin and MBL-Associated Serine Protease-2 Genotypes and Serum Levels in Patients with Sporotrichosis. (PubMed)

Mannose-Binding Lectin and MBL-Associated Serine Protease-2 Genotypes and Serum Levels in Patients with Sporotrichosis. Mannose-binding lectin (MBL) and MBL-associated serine protease-2 (MASP-2) are important proteins in the lectin pathway of the immune system. Mannose-binding lectin and MASP-2 deficiencies have been reported to be responsible for various fungal infections. We investigated the association of MBL and MASP-2 variants with sporotrichosis in a Chinese population and revealed one (...) rare heterozygous mutation in a disseminated cutaneous patient without immunosuppressive conditions (p.156_159dupCHNH). We also found that sporotrichosis patients had decreased levels of MBL and MASP-2 in their serum samples compared with controls. Our findings linked, for the first time, MASP-2 deficiencies with susceptibility to Sporothrix sp.

6. Effective treatment using itraconazole combined with terbinafine in the treatment of nasal sporotrichosis: A case report. (PubMed)

Effective treatment using itraconazole combined with terbinafine in the treatment of nasal sporotrichosis: A case report. Sporotrichosis is a subacute or chronic infection caused by sporothrix schenckii complex. The misdiagnosis rate of sporotrichosis is very high. Fungal microscopic examination and timely culture help us make an accurate diagnosis and treatment. We observed that combined treatments are more effective than monotherapy in treatment of sporotrichosis.A 47-year-old female (...) of sporothrix-like species appeared by fungal culture. The diagnosis of sporotrichosis was finally confirmed based on the lesion characteristics and the results of laboratory examination.The lesions did not alleviate with Itraconazole oral administration for 1 month. Then we treated the patient with the combination therapy of itraconazole (ITR) and terbinafine. At the same time, the compound glycyrrhizin tablet was used for liver protection.The patient was free of clinical symptoms of sporotrichosis

7. Disseminated sporotrichosis following iatrogenic immunosuppression for suspected pyoderma gangrenosum. (PubMed)

Disseminated sporotrichosis following iatrogenic immunosuppression for suspected pyoderma gangrenosum. Sporotrichosis is an infection caused by the dimorphic fungus Sporothrix schenckii and related species that often arises from traumatic inoculation of inhabited soil and organic debris into skin. The infection is usually limited to the skin in immunocompetent patients, usually as lymphocutaneous sporotrichosis. Accurate diagnosis rests on clinical data and culture, and might be facilitated (...) by biopsy identification of suppurative and granulomatous inflammation with fungal elements. In this Grand Round, we present a dramatic case of cutaneous sporotrichosis initially presented with an atypical large ulcer without associated lymphocutaneous spread, clinically mimicking pyoderma gangrenosum, and subsequently progressed to disseminated sporotrichosis in the setting of iatrogenic immunosuppression. We further review the clinical features, risk factors, and treatment of these disseminated

8. Sporotrichosis in the Highlands of Madagascar, 2013-2017<sup>1</sup>. (PubMed)

Sporotrichosis in the Highlands of Madagascar, 2013-20171. Sporotrichosis is a saprozoonotic fungal infection found mostly in tropical and subtropical areas. Few case reports in Madagascar have been published. To document sporotrichosis epidemiology in Madagascar, we conducted a cross-sectional study. During March 2013-June 2017, we recruited from select hospitals in Madagascar patients with chronic cutaneous lesions suggestive of dermatomycosis. Sporotrichosis was diagnosed for 63 (...) (42.5%) of 148 patients. All but 1 patient came from the central highlands, where the prevalence was 0.21 cases/100,000 inhabitants. Frequency was high (64.7%) among patients <18 years of age. Sporotrichosis was diagnosed for 73.8% of patients with arm lesions, 32.3% with leg lesions, and 15.4% with lesions at other sites. Molecular identification identified 53 Sporothrix schenckii isolates. Among the 32 patients who were followed up, response to itraconazole was complete or major for 15 and minor

18. Sporotrichin Skin Test for the Diagnosis of Sporotrichosis (PubMed)

Sporotrichin Skin Test for the Diagnosis of Sporotrichosis Sporotrichosis is the most common implantation mycosis caused by several species of the Sporothrix schenckii complex. The gold standard for diagnosis is concerned with the isolation of the fungus; although, fresh examinations, staining, and biopsies are also helpful for this purpose. The sporotrichin is an antigenic complex comprised of a peptide-rhamnomannan, which is relevant with respect to pathogenic fungi; it is primarily used (...) for serological and skin testing. We present a study regarding the use of sporotrichin as a diagnostic aid for cutaneous sporotrichosis. Furthermore, 138 cases with suspicion of sporotrichosis were included, 55 of which were proven through cultures. Moreover, out of these 55 cases, 52 (94.5%) tested positive for sporotrichin, while the negative cases corresponded to the disseminated cutaneous forms. We observed a sensitivity of 94.5% and a specificity of 95.2%. We consider that the use of sporotrichin

20. Immunopathogenesis of Human Sporotrichosis: What We Already Know (PubMed)

Immunopathogenesis of Human Sporotrichosis: What We Already Know Sporotrichosis is a subacute/chronic mycosis caused by dimorphic fungus of the genus Sporothrix. This mycosis may affect both human and domestic animals and in the last few years, the geographic dispersion and increase of sporotrichosis worldwide has been observed. The occurrence of cases related to scratching/bites of domestic felines have increased, characterizing the disease as predominantly a zoonosis. In humans (...) , sporotrichosis mainly involves the cutaneous tegument of infected patients, but other tissues may also present the infection. The main forms of clinical presentation are lymphocutanous sporotrichosis (LC) and fixed sporotrichosis (F). Although less common, mucosal, cutaneous disseminated, and extracutaneous forms have also been described. Multiple factors from the fungus and host can play a role in driving the clinical evolution of sporotrichosis to benign or severe disease. In this review, we discuss
