Sporotrichosis is a fungal disease relevant to Public Health, since it is highly contagious to human beings and other animals. Felines are the most afflicted by de disease. There are different methods for diagnoses, as cytology, microbiological culture and fungal identification, polymerase chain reaction PCR and histology exams.

Abreu, Daniel Paiva Barros de. Dimorphic fungi belonging to Sporothrix schenckii complex are responsible for sporotrichosis, important fungal infection with worldwide distribution. The anthropozoonotic characteristic is of high relevance in the state of Rio de Janeiro, where an increasing in the number of cases in human patients was observed in the last decades, highlighting the role of domestic cat as a transmitter agent.

The description of new species compounding de Sporothrix genus, based on phenotypic and genotypic evaluations, showed the involvement of other members of this group in the epidemic status installed in Rio de Janeiro. The verification of strains resistant to itraconazole, a widely used antifungal in human and animal medicine for the treatment of this mycosis, is an important factor that possibly results in relapse and therapeutic failure of this disease.

Based on morphophysiological characteristics it was possible to identify No ITC resistant isolates were detected in the present study. These results demonstrate that the identification reached only by phenotypic evaluation is not recommended for the characterization of Sporothrix schenckii complex components. It also proves the predominance of S.

The better efficacy of TRB added to the absence of isolates resistant to ITC support the necessity of pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics studies for the optimization of the therapeutic protocols.

More information about isolates from dogs and cats correlated with the species from the S. In this way, the present study also provides relevant information about the endemic status in Rio de Janeiro and important data for the treatment of human and animal sporotrichosis.

Abstract: Background: Sporotrichosis is a fungal infection caused by Sporothrix schenckii species complex, which is distributed worldwide, especially in regions of tropical and subtropical climates. It can affect humans and a great variety of animals, among which, the domestic dog and cat. Today is considered the subcutaneous mycosis more frequent in Brazil, due to the progressive increase of zoonotic transmission of the disease in the metropolitan region of Rio de Janeiro. Review: In the endemic region of zoonotic sporotrichosis in Rio de Janeiro,veterinarians, their assistants and owners of cats with sporotrichosis are considered risk groups for acquiring the infection.

Background: Sporotrichosis is a deep cutaneous mycosis caused by the Sporothrix species complex, dimorphic fungi of which at least five are of clinical importance: S. The disease affects humans and animals, especially cats, which can manifest a wide spectrum of clinical sings, from cutaneous-lymphatic involvement to disseminated form. Infection usually results from direct inoculation of the fungus into skin. Zoonotic transmission is associated with scratching or biting of sick cats. The aim of this work was to report an atypical case of bone sporotrichosis in a cat.
