Abstract

Sporotrichosis is an ergodermatosic dermatopathy of anthropozoonotic or saprozoonotic characteristics, whose main sources of infection are domestic cats, plants and soil. It is also known as "Schenk's illness", "maladie de vacances", "Illness of veterinarians, gardeners and florists". Epidemic and epizootic outbreaks are occasionally evidenced, as that occurred in the late twentieth century in cats, dogs and humans in southeastern Brazil. Aspects of occurrence, etiopathogenesis, clinical signs, diagnosis, prognosis and therapy of dogs, cats and horses with sporotrichosis are reviewed.
