Special Issue Information
Sporotrichosis is a deep-seated fungal infection that is caused by members of the Sporothrix schenckii complex, a group of organisms capable of growing on vegetal, animal and human tissues. Although it has been more than a century since the first report of the disease and the causative agent, it has been regarded as a neglected disease and both the clinical and molecular fields have received little attention, until recently. Fostered by the International Society for Human and Animal Mycology, a working group on Sporothrix and sporotrichosis was established by Profs. Leila Lópes-Bezerra (Brazil) and Héctor Mora-Montes (México), with the goal to attract more researchers to this field and to build up collaborations between groups. These goals were consolidated in 2013 with the First International Meeting on Sporothrix and sporotrichosis, and a special issue, gathering the most outstanding contributions of this event was published by the journal Medical Mycology in 2015. This year, we had the second edition of this event, and we do consider that a special issue on this organism and the caused disease could be of great interest for the readers of Journal of Fungi. Since the meeting covered basic and clinical aspects of Sporothrix, we can collect different papers dealing with subjects of interest for both clinicians and basic researchers.
