Abstract

Three cases of disseminated cutaneous sporotrichosis are reported, including a rare presentation of the disease as vesicular dermatitis. The diagnosis was confirmed by culture of a skin biopsy specimen, and all patients responded well to amphotericin B therapy. The sporotrichosis slide latex agglutination titer was used to determine the end point of therapy.
