Sporotricosis is a form of chronic lymphocutaneous infection that follows traumatic inoculation of the fungus Sporothrix schenckii into the skin leading to subcutaneous mycoses. History of atypical ulcer with cellulitis that did not respond to courses of antibiotics should draw the clinician's attention to other differential diagnosis such as sporotrichosis because it can mimic other cutaneous presentations as well such as cellulitis.
