Two rare forms of sporotrichosis were seen in one hospital within a two-year period. One, a case of primary sporotrichosis of the lung, represents the eighth case on record, to our knowledge. The other, a case of articular sporotrichosis, is not as rare, but is still an uncommon manifestation of the disease. The problems in management of these two patients are of interest because of the challenge to conventional concepts of therapy.
