Pulmonary involvement during Sporotrichium schenkii infection can present as either primary pulmonary or systemic disease. The clinical and radiological features in the primary form closely resemble those of adult-type tuberculosis. On clinical, radiological and histopathological grounds pulmonary involvement during systemic spread can be difficult to distinguish from sarcoidosis. The diagnostic and therapeutic problems encountered in a woman with systemic sporotrichosis infection with pulmonary involvement are described.
