Ninety-two isolates belonging to 5 species of the Sporothrix schenckii complex were tested in vitro against twelve antifungal agents, using a reference microdilution method. There were significant differences among the species, Sporothrix brasiliensis was the species that showed the best response to antifungals and S. mexicana was the worst. In general, terbinafine was the most active drug, followed by ketoconazole and posaconazole.
