Abstract

Sporotrichosis is caused by the thermodimorphic fungi of the genus Sporothrix. It is the most common cutaneous mycosis in Latin America, but it is considered uncommon in pregnancy. We report a pregnant woman with with an exuberant ulcerated plaque that proved to be localized sporotrichosis. Therapy choice is a difficult decision in this group of patients. In this case, there was complete resolution of the infection after delivery, without any therapeutic intervention.
