Abstract

Blastomycosis is a relatively uncommon disease, even in its endemic region. The clinical course and symptoms are highly variable; patients may be asymptomatic or present with severe, fulminant disease. Antifungal agents are effective against pulmonary and disseminated disease, but relapses and reactivation can occur. The radiographic findings are nonspecific, and patients are often assumed to have bacterial pneumonia, malignancy, tuberculosis, or sarcoidosis before the correct diagnosis is made.
