1/2. Hyperthermic treatment of sporotrichosis: experimental use of infrared and far infrared rays.

    We used pocket warmers and infrared and far infrared rays to treat 14 cases of sporotrichosis, 7 in children and 7 in adults. There were 9 cases of the fixed cutaneous type and 5 of the lymphocutaneous type; 6 were located on the face and 8 on the limbs. Four cases were treated with pocket warmers, 5 with infrared rays, and 5 with far infrared rays. All lesions treated with pocket warmers were facial lesions in children; infrared and far infrared ray treatments were used in 3 children and 7 adults, 2 on facial lesions and 8 on lesions on the extremities. In treatments with infrared and far infrared rays, the amount of heat was greater than with the pocket warmers, and one 15-min treatment daily was sufficient to yield satisfactory results, but this method is difficult to use on children and on the face, and 40-min treatments two or three times a week proved unsatisfactory. Infrared and far infrared ray treatments allow the length of a single treatment to be reduced by three-quarters, in comparison with one pocket warmer treatment.

2/2. sporothrix schenckii tenosynovitis: a case report.

    sporothrix schenckii is a fungus known to cause infection of skin in the subcutaneous tissues. In this case tenosynovitis was caused by sporotrichosis resulting in rupture of the extensor tendon. Excision of the involved tenosynovium and repair of the tendons were done. Five months of oral medication with ketoconazole, 400 mg daily, led to resolution of the synovial disease and regression of a 1 cm pulmonary nodule found on a routine chest x ray film.
