In this work, a mathematical model with an age structure is proposed that describes the transmission dynamics of subcutaneous mycosis caused by dimorphic fungi of the genus \textit {Sporothrix}, known as sporotrichosis. This model is presented through a system of ordinary differential equations that involves three age groups (puppies, youngsters and adults) for the population of male and female semi-domiciled cats that live in the city of Rio de Janeiro - Brazil, and that comprise three states immunological (susceptible, infected and under treatment).

Joint work with Dayvison F S Freitas (Fundação Oswaldo Cruz), Priscila M Macedo (Fundação Oswaldo Cruz), Sandro A Pereira (Fundação Oswaldo Cruz), Cláudia T Codeço (Fundação Oswaldo Cruz) and Flávio C Coelho (Fundação Getulio Vargas).
