Paracoccidioidomycosis in a Spanish missionary.

Author information

Tropical Medicine Unit, Hospital Carlos III, Madrid, Spain.


Paracoccidioidomycosis is the most important systemic mycosis in South America. In Europe the disease is very rare and only found in returning travelers. Here we report on a 56-year-old Spanish missionary with respiratory symptoms but no other affected systems. Diagnosis was made based on serology and PCR for Paracoccidioides brasiliensis.
