Abstract

A 27-year-old man, who had been shoveling gravel in southern Texas for 3 years, had a history of papules and nodules in the left lateral wall of the abdomen. The lesions increased in number and severity with spread to other regions of the body. A punch biopsy of the right arm lesion revealed intracellular, round and cigar shaped budding yeast. The cultures grew Sporotrichum schenkii. Three-phase bone imaging and a Ga-67 scan defined the extent of the disease including involvement of the right tibia, left second metacarpal, and the left wrist joints, the latter two of which were not apparent on clinical examination.
