A case of disseminated sporotrichosis resembling pyoderma gangrenosum is presented. Biopsy and autopsy section showed masses of spores, cigar-shaped bodies, and some mycelia. The clinical picture and histologic findings of this case indicate the need for a broader concept of the disease produced by Sporotrichum schenckii.
