Six cases of sporotrichosis in Delhi (non-endemic area) were recorded in migrants from Uttarakhand over a period of one year (2008-2009).The clinico-epidemiological and mycological profile of the patients is discussed. These were confirmed by mycological culture, histopathological examination and/or remission of lesion with potassiumiodide. Sporotrichosis is endemic in Uttarakhand, a north-western state in the sub-Himalayan region.
