Abstract

ABSTRACT: The authors present the case of a 45-year-old immunosuppressed man with lower extremity ulcers. Initially treated as venous ulcers, the wounds were later correctly diagnosed as cutaneous disseminated sporotrichosis. After appropriate treatment with systemic antifungals was initiated, the patient healed within 4 months.
