In a recent publication, Hopkins and Benham1 reviewed the incidence of sporotrichosis in New York State, and found that only one culturally proved case had been reported previous to their communication. The first case was presented by Howard Fox2 before the New York Academy of Medicine in 1921. The patient was a sailor and probably acquired the disease in the tropics. The two cases reported by Hopkins and Benham1 included one observed by Osborne in Buffalo in 1928, and one studied by them in New York City in 1929. The second case probably developed the infection in Monticello, New York.
