Epidemiological study of sporotrichosis and histoplasmosis in captive Latin American wild mammals, S�o Paulo, Brazil

Abstract: Sporotrichosis and histoplasmosis are deep mycosis with a high incidence in human beings in Brazil. In domestic animals histoplasmosis has been described only in dogs, but the occurrence of sporotrichosis among domestic animals in Brazil has been described in dogs, cats, mules and asses. There is also a case of this disease reported in a chimpanzee (Pan troglodites). The purpose of this research was to perform an epidomiological study of these mycoses using delayed hypersensitivity tests (histoplasmin and spor… Show more

“…The fungus infects a human by traumatic implantation into the skin or, rarely, by inhalation, when it lodges in the lungs [1][2][3][4][5]. The disease occurs worldwide, attacks humans and animals and manifests as the cutaneous form (fixed, lymphocutaneous and disseminated) and the less common extracutaneous form (primary pulmonary and disseminated).…”

“…9,10 Sporotrichosis is the most common subcutaneous mycosis in Latin America. 11,12 In Brazil, sporotrichosis has been reported since 1907, 13 especially in São Paulo and Rio Grande do Sul. [14][15][16][17][18] This justifies our interest in reporting cases of sporotrichosis diagnosed in this geographic area.…”

“…Previous studies on systemic mycoses in animals in Brazil include paracoccidioidomycosis in domestic (M6s and Fava Netto, 1974;Costa, 1975) and wild animals (Costa et al, 1992); and sporotrichosis and histoplasmosis, also in both domestic (Costa and Fava Netto, 1978) and wild animals (Costa et al, 1994(Costa et al, , 1995.…”
