ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study concerning the use of local hyperthermia in treating cat with sporotrichosis in Great Britain. It notes that sporotrichosis is a subcutaneous mycosis caused by the dimorphic fungus Sporothrix schenckii. In domestic cats, sporotrichosis is described by the presence of ulcerated and nodular cutaneous lesions, which may be disseminated. Treating feline sporotrichosis is difficult and represents a challenge to veterinarians since there are few therapeutic options.
