Isolates of Sporothrix schenckii were examined for their infectivity in BALB/c mice. The mice were injected with yeast forms of S. schenckii isolates differing in clinical source (human cutaneous lesions and pulmonary lesions), and fungal growth was determined at intervals in the footpad and visceral organs. After subcutaneous injection of approximately 10 colony forming units (cfu) of S. schenckii into the footpad, locally restricted fungal infection developed gradually. At the peak of the… CONTINUE READING
