GARCIA DUARTE, Jesús Manuel et al. Sporotrichosis transmitted by domestic cat. A family case report. Rev. Nac. (Itauguá) [online]. 2017, vol.9, n.2, pp.67-76. ISSN 2072-8174.

Sporotrichosis is a subcutaneous mycosis caused by species of the group Sporothrix schenckii complex. Relatively frequent in Paraguay, in some cases it can be considered as a zoonosis.

We present a family case of sporotrichosis, a father and his son who consulted in the Dermatology Service of the National Hospital, for skin lesions related to contact with a sick domestic cat, which presented lesions on the face. Clinically, the first case and a fixed plate corresponded to the lymphangitic form in the second. The diagnosis was confirmed with mycological culture. They received potassium iodide with a very good response after 5 months of treatment.

The importance of this communication is to warn that the domestic cat suffering from and spreading sporotrichosis is important in the epidemiology of the disease, a situation observed in other regions.

Palavras-chave : sporotrichosis; zoonosis; sporotrichosis in cat.
