(44) There is also a South American form called Paracoccidioidomycosis
which mostly effects men aged 20-50 who work as coffee growers.
Lobomycosis has been associated in the same patient with other diseases, such as ringworm, leprosy, paracoccidioidomycosis
, chromomycosis, and leishmaniasis (7,13,31), as in case-patient 6 in our study.
(46) Infectious considerations include tuberculosis, leprosy, syphilitic gumma, fungal infections (histoplasmosis, blastomycosis, paracoccidioidomycosis
), and granulomatosis with polyangiitis.
(21) However, cross-reactivity may arise with several fungal infections including histoplasmosis and paracoccidioidomycosis
, (21) both of which should also be considered in patients with fungal infections of the head and neck.

(PCM) is a systemic mycosis caused by the dimorphic fungi Paracoccidioides brasiliensis (Pb) and Paracoccidioides lutzii [2-5].
In a patient presenting with such a clinical syndrome, it is important to maintain a broad differential diagnosis, including both infectious and noninfectious causes: TB, bacillus Calmette-Guerin, filariasis, leishmaniasis, brucellosis, syphilis, chlamydia, paracoccidioidomycosis
, malignancy, autoimmune diseases, obstruction, medication adverse effects, trauma, postinfectious, and idiopathic [12-15].
(PMC) is a fungal infection caused by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis, and it affects mainly patients living in the South and Central America.
