dc.description.abstract Sporotrichosis is a subcutaneous mycosis caused by Sporothrix schenckii with endemic regions in the American continent. Clinical features depend on the immunological patient state and some characteristics of the fungus. Disseminated cutaneous sporotrichosis is a rare variant usually described in immunocompromised patients. A 42-year-old man was admitted with multiple verrucous and erythematous papules and plaques of the face and limbs. Many lesions showed an ulcerated and crusted component, some papules displayed linear arrangement, and some verrucous plaques exhibited black spots. Skin biopsy revealed pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia and granulomas in the papillary dermis. Culture of a skin sample grew Sporothrix schenkii.We report an unusual presentation of disseminated cutaneous sporotrichosis, which was a diagnostic challenge owing to polymorphism and spread of the lesions in a patient without an immunosuppressive state. © 2018, Dermatology Online Journal.
