Based on the co-occurrence of clinical disease in dogs and their owners, canine blastomycosis
cases are a potential epidemiologic marker for the risk for human disease (9).
H) Randomly distributed micronodules fitting with a hematogenous pattern could suggest tuberculosis, histoplasmosis, candidiasis, blastomycosis
or a viral cause especially in immunocompromised patients.
Evaluations are continuing to determine the ability of such antigenic preparations as immunizing or immunodiagnostic reagents for blastomycosis
Although it can be used for infections caused by Candida, the primary indication is for mild to moderate endemic mycoses, such as paracoccidioidomycosis, histoplasmosis, coccidioidomycosis, blastomycosis
, chromoblastomycosis, phaeohyphomycosis and sporotrichosis, in addition to dermatomycosis.
Abbott and his colleagues diagnosed cutaneous infections of dimorphic fungi (histoplasmosis, blastomycosis
, coccidiomycosis, or cryptococcosis) in five patients, four of whom were immunocompromised.
is a pyogranulomatous fungal infection caused by the Blastomyces dermatitidis fungus, which is common in the regions along the Mississippi and Ohio rivers.
The spectrum of clinical manifestations of blastomycosis
includes acute pulmonary disease, subacute and chronic pulmonary disease (most common presentations), and disseminated extrapulmonary disease (cutaneous manifestations are most common, followed by involvement of the bone, the genitourinary tract, and central nervous system) (1 ).
is endemic to a large portion of the United States.
gilchristii have been recognized as etiologic agents of blastomycosis
Suppurative granulomas are associated with a myriad of infectious conditions, including blastomycosis
, coccidiomycosis, paracoccidiomycosis, phaeohyphomycosis, cryptococcosis, cat-scratch disease, nocardiosis, actinomycosis, and other atypical mycobacterial infections.
They include blastomycosis
, cryptococcosis, coccidial granuloma, actinomycosis, mycetoma, aspergilosis, mucormycosis.
