Efficacy of acute phase and maintenance therapy with itraconazole in an AIDS patient with sporotrichosis.


Eur J Clin Microbiol Infect Dis. 1994 Jul;13(7):609-12. Unique

An AIDS patient with sporotrichosis who improved with itraconazole therapy after consecutive failure of ketoconazole, saturated solution of potassium iodide, fluconazole and amphotericin B is presented. In addition, long-term therapy with high doses of itraconazole was well tolerated and effective in avoiding relapse. Itraconazole may be suitable for use in HIV-infected patients with sporotrichosis, who probably require chronic suppressive therapy to prevent relapse of symptomatic disease.
