Esporotricosis en el brazo

La esporotricosis es una infección micótica que se presenta con frecuencia tras una lesión menor al trabajar en el jardín o en un granja. Las esporas que habitan en la vegetación penetran la piel y comienzan a crecer. El hongo sube por los canales linfáticos hacia la parte superior de la extremidad, y empiezan entonces a desarrollarse lesiones granulomatosas a lo largo del canal linfático, las cuales se ulceran y drenan. Si no se la trata, esta condición pueden durar muchos años.Esporotricosis en el brazo
