Abstract: The first case of cutaneous lymphatic sporotrichosis from Nagaland and a case of cutaneous sporotrichosis from Kerala who had acquired infection from Assam are reported. The diagnosis in both cases were established by isolating Sporothrix schenckii from multiple cutaneous lesions. The dimorphic nature of fungus was established in vitro by demonstrating the mycelial phase at 25-30 degrees C and yeast phase at 37 degrees C and pathogenicity to white mice. Both the patients were successfully treated with oral administration of potassium iodide for 3 months.
