Sporothrix spp. cause the most common deep fungal skin infections in Brazil and this is related to infected cats. Transmission is traditionally from organic material/plants but can also be zoonotic. Culture of a skin biopsy is the golden standard for determination. Treatment with oral itraconazole approaches up to 95% efficacy in patients with cutaneous sporotrichosis.
