Resumen

Septic arthritis is an unusual complication of Sporothrix schenckii infection. Its diagnosis can be very difficult, mainly because of low clinical suspicion, special media needed for its culture, and low density of the organism in biopsy specimens. We present a case of a woman with disseminated Sporothrix schenckii infection and polyarthritis. Although rare, this wide dissemination of fungus and polyarthritis occurred in an initially immunocompetent patient. Steroid therapy given for suspected vasculitis might have worsened her condition.
