31) There is also a South American form called paracoccidioidomycosis which mostly affects men aged 20-50 who work as coffee growers.
The differential diagnosis includes several infectious granulomatous processes, including bacterial (tuberculosis, actinomycosis, syphilis, and leprosy), fungal (histoplasmosis, blastomycosis, paracoccidioidomycosis, and sporotrichosis), and parasitic (mucocutaneous leishmaniasis) diseases.
3) Additionally, the diversity of climates and habitats in Latin America leads to a higher incidence of endemic mycoses, including histoplasmosis, paracoccidioidomycosis, and coccidioidomycosis.
Rhinoscleroma should be distinguished from tuberculosis, leprosy, syphilitic gumma, histoplasmosis, blastomycosis, paracoccidioidomycosis, rhinosporidiosis, leishmaniasis, Wegener granulomatosis, T-cell/natural killer cell lymphomas, and carcinomas.
Clinical and pathological evidences supported the diagnosis of paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM).
Some limitations occur, including the need for 2 to 6 weeks for antibody production after infection, impaired production of antibodies in immunosuppressed patients, and presence of cross-reaction mainly due to paracoccidioidomycosis, blastomycosis, and aspergillosis (9).
These clinical samples included specimens from patients diagnosed with: histoplasmosis (n =10), paracoccidioidomycosis (n = 21), pneumocystosis (n = 6), candidiasis (n = 16), aspergillosis (n = 19), and tuberculosis (n = 20).
Lobo suspected that the patient had a modified form of paracoccidioidomycosis, which he called keloidal blastomycosis (2).
Paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) is an important systemic granulomatous disease restricted to tropical and subtropical endemic areas in Latin America, from Mexico to northern Argentina caused by the thermal dimorphic fungi of Paracoccidioides genus.
14,20) Additionally, the IFAT has other disadvantages such as not being suitable for automation, high cross-reactivity in patients with Chagas disease, paracoccidioidomycosis, pemphigus foliaceus, and some deep mycoses.
Paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) is a fungal disease, chronic and endemic, especially in Latin America.
It has a wide spectrum of action against agents of dermatomycoses, endemic mycoses (including paracoccidioidomycosis and histoplasmosis) and isolates of Candida spp.
