We experienced 3 cases of fixed type cutaneous sporotrichosis confined to the face. Case 1 was a 32-month old child, affected over the nose. Case 2 was a 25-year old man, affected over the left cheek. Case 3 was a 71-year old man, affected over the nose. Histopathologically, chronic granulomatous inflammation with pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia was observed. Mycologically, typical dark brown to black colored colonines with moist, wrinkled and membranous surfaces were cultured. All patients were completely cured by oral administration of saturated KI and itraconazole combined therapy in a short period(40-90 days).
