Abstract

All 3 members of a family developed lymphocutaneous and cutaneous sporotrichosis after exposure to an infected cat. The lesions resembled acute bacterial lymphadenitis and lymphangitis and responded within 2 weeks to ketoconazole treatment with complete healing and no recurrence over the next 6 months. Immunologically normal children and adults with lymphocutaneous or cutaneous sporotrichosis may respond well to ketoconazole therapy.
