    Abstract / Zusammenfassung

    A four-year-old male castrated Domestic Shorthair Cat imported from North America was presented due to a chronic parapreputial wound. Cytological and mycological examination revealed a sporotrichosis. Sporothrix schenckii lives as a saprophyte in the soil and can cause a subcutaneous and systemic mycosis in cats.The disease has been reported in tropical and subtropical areas. Clinical signs, diagnostics, as well as therapy and course of the disease are described. Treatment with itraconazole was successful.
