Sporotrichoid pyogenic bacterial infection.Dermatologica. 1989; 178(4):228-30.D
Two cases of pyogenic bacterial infection, which initially resembled lymphocutaneous sporotrichosis are reported. In case 1, Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus group A were cultured from the lesion and in case 2, S. aureus alone. Histologically, botryomyotic grains were identified in case 2; this patient had diffuse normolipidemic plane xanthoma. With oral administration of cefaclor, the cutaneous lesions dramatically improved in both cases.
