Clinical Significance

Titers of 1:4 or greater generally support a diagnosis of sporotrichosis. However, false positive results have been reported in the range of 1:4 to 1:8. Titers as high as 1:128 have been reported in patients with localized cutaneous, subcutaneous, and systemic sporotrichosis. Rising or sustained high titers are useful in establishing a diagnosis of pulmonary sporotrichosis.
