Chronic Meningitis and Hydrocephalus due to Sporothrix brasiliensis in Immunocompetent Adults: A Challenging Entity.

Mialski R, et al. Open Forum Infect Dis. 2018.

Abstract

Chronic meningitis caused by Sporothrix sp. is occasionally described in immunosuppressed patients. We report the challenges in diagnosing and managing 2 nonimmunocompromised patients with hydrocephalus and chronic meningitis caused by Sporothrix brasiliensis. This more virulent species appears to contribute more atypical and severe cases than other related species.
