Two patients with infection due to Mycobacterium kansasii are described in which skin lesions occurred in an ascending proximal fashion strongly suggesting sporotrichosis. These are apparently the second and third persons reported to have cutaneous infection due to M kansasii and the first ones in which a sporotrichoid pattern of skin involvement was present.
