Sporothrix

 [spor´o-thriks]
a genus of fungi, including S. schenck´ii, which causes sporotrichosis, and S. car´nis, which causes formation of white mold on meat in cold storage.

Sporothrix

(spō'rō-thriks),
A genus of dimorphic imperfect fungi, including the species Sporothrix schenckii, an organism of worldwide distribution and the causative agent of sporotrichosis in humans and animals, which grows in soil or vegetation, especially in thorny bushes, and is acquired by humans when infected thorns are introduced into subcutaneous tissues; at 37°C it grows as a yeast and parasitizes tissues as a yeast.
