Abstract: Sporotrichosis is a fungal disease usually restricted to the cutaneous and lymphatic systems. Visceral involvement is unusual. To date, only 21 cases of sporotrichosis meningitis have been reported, some of these associated with immunosuppression. According to the reported cases, difficulty establishing the correct diagnosis is almost the rule which, undoubtedly, is associated with a worse prognosis. In this report, two HIV infected patients are described who developed meningitis due to Sporothrix schenckii associated with immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome. This is the first report of sporotrichosis meningitis associated with immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome in AIDS patients.
