Abstract

ALDAMA CABALLERO, Arnaldo Benjamín Feliciano et al. Cutaneous disseminated sporotrichosis. Rev. Nac. (Itauguá) [online]. 2019, vol.11, n.2, pp.119-132. ISSN 2072-8174.  https://doi.org/10.18004/rdn2019.0011.02.119-132.

Sporotrichosis is a deep mycosis produced by species of the genus Sporothrix, that present several clinical forms, with lymphangitis being the most frequent. Disseminated forms are rare, are also related to immunosuppression and may be only cutaneous or systemic. We present the case of an elderly woman who consults for disseminated skin lesions and even conjunctival involvement caused by Sporothrix globosa, with several immunosuppression factors.

Keywords : sporotrichosis; disseminated sporotrichosis; Sporothrix globosa; immunosuppression.
