We report a pediatric case of sporotrichosis with zoonotic transmission of Sporothrix schenckii from a feline to an otherwise healthy 2-year-old girl.
Patient Presentation This 48-year-old dairy farmer presented with a 3-month history of boggy, suppurative papules and nodules with crusts on his right cheek.
