Abstract We report an atypical case of sporotrichosis in an elderly woman working as a horticulturist, who presented with multiple ulcers and nodules on the face and the right upper back. Histological examination found numerous small yeast-like spores in the granulomatous reaction in the upper dermis. Culture and DNA analysis identified Sporothrix schenckii, group B. Misuse of topical steroids and self-inoculation may have caused the atypical features found in this patient.
