Lewis1 states that sporotrichosis seldom remains localized to a single lesion. A perusal of the literature discloses that only two cases of solitary sporotrichotic lesions have been reported to date. Campbell,2 in 1933, described a sporotrichotic "chancre" of five months' duration, with no satellite lesions. Graham3 reported a second case of this type in 1941.
Recently, I have observed a similar case, which I believe may be of interest for review.

Since the cutaneous manifestations continued to increase in size, the patient decided to seek medical care. Upon examination
