This patient’s arm shows the effects of the fungal disease sporotrichosis, caused by the fungus Sporothrix schenckii.
Additional Information:
The first symptom of sporotrichosis, is usually a small painless bump that’s red, pink, or purple. This is followed by one or more additional bumps/nodules which open and may resemble boils. Eventually lesions look like open sores, or ulcerations, and heal slowly.
