Blastomycosis

Blastomycosis is a chronic granulomatous and suppurative disease having a primary pulmonary stage that is frequently followed by dissemination to other body sites, chiefly the skin and bone. Although the disease was long thought to be restricted to the North American continent, in recent years autochthonous cases have been diagnosed in Africa, Asia and Europe.

Distribution: North America, some cases from Africa, Asia and Europe.

Aetiological Agent:Blastomyces dermatitidis, a soil inhabiting fungus.
