CUTANEOUS SPOROTRICHOSIS: A RARE CASE REPORT
Dr. Sourabh Sharma, Dr. Prajul Mehta and Dr. Sakshi Bhota*
Sporotrichosis is a fungal skin infection caused by Sporothrix schenckii. We report a 73-year-old male presented with non healing oozy lesion over right index finger and that the lesion had developed afterwards about 1 yrs ago following history of manipulation with thorn. The nodule was histopathologically diagnosed as sporotrichosis. The dermoscopic features of sporotrichosis have not yet been reported as far as we are aware. We believe that coexistence of the above features, which could be thought to be nonspecific when seen separately, may be of diagnostic significance and a helpful tool in the diagnosis of cutaneous sporotrichosis.
Keywords: cutaneous sporotrichosis, Sporothrix schenckii, fungal, dermoscopy, histopathology.
