Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND: Sporotrichosis is a granulomatous infection caused by Sporothrix schenkii. Although world-wide in distribution, only four cases have been reported from southern India to date. METHODS: The medical records of all cases seen at the Department of Dermatology at St John's Medical College Hospital, Bangalore, over the last 15 years were reviewed. RESULTS: A total of seven cases of sporotrichosis were seen in this 15-year period. CONCLUSION: Sporotrichosis is considered to occur only sporadically in southern India. Our findings suggest that this may be a result of reporting bias.
