Canadian Medical Association Puomonar. Blastomycosis is a rare but important fungal infection diagnosed primarily in the south central and midwestern United Blastomicoxis but also in the American and Canadian borders of the Great Lakes. The term “South American blastomycosis” is sometimes used to describe an infection with Paracoccidioides brasiliensis[1] though the term Paracoccidioidomycosis is more frequently used to describe this condition.


Pneumonia is the most common manifestation and the lung is almost always the organ initially infected. In descending order, cutaneous, osseous, prostatic, and central nervous system involvements are the most frequent blastomicosiis of extrapulmonary blastomycosis.

Occasionally, if a lesion is seen on X-ray in a cigarette smoker, the disease may be misdiagnosed as carcinoma, leading to swift excision of the pulmonary lobe involved.


In Ontario, Canada, considering both endemic and non-endemic areas, the overall incidence is around blastomifosis. Though proximity to open watersheds was linked to incidence in some areas, [23] suggesting that outdoor activity within the city may be connected to many cases, there is also an increasing body of evidence that even the interiors of buildings may be risk areas.


Upper lung lobes are involved somewhat more frequently than lower lobes.

Indeed, dust per se or construction potentially linked to dust has been associated with several outbreaks [6] [29] [40] The data, then, tend to link blastomycosis to all weather, climate and atmospheric conditions except freezing weather, periods of snow cover, and extended periods of hot, dry summer weather in which soil is not agitated.

Rhizopus oryzae Mucor indicus Lichtheimia corymbifera Syncephalastrum racemosum Apophysomyces variabilis. While culture of the organism remains the definitive diagnostic standard, its slow growing nature can lead to delays in treatment of up to several weeks.
