Diseases for which there exists a specific therapeutic agent are not numerous. Sporotrichosis alone, of all the deep mycoses, belongs in this unique category, which implies that a positive diagnosis of such an infection is tantamount to a significant and worthwhile therapeutic accomplishment. Fewer than 200 cases of sporotrichosis, many of these not verified, had been recorded in this country by 1932.1 Since that time, however, the proved incidence of the disease has mounted with such rapidity that it now constitutes a disease to be reckoned with on occasion by physicians in every branch of medicine.
