oa Central African Journal of Medicine - North American Blastomycosis in Rhodesia

Volume 18, Issue 7
  • ISSN : 0008-9176



The presence of a mycotic disease in Rhodesia conforming to the type descriptionbed as North American blastomycosis is confirmed. The clinical features of eight cases are given. The bones were almost always involved as well as the lungs. The skin however, may be affected either by granuloma developing in it or secondarily, by a sinus forming from an underlying bone abscess. The disease is liable to be mistaken for pulmonary tuberculosis, secondary deposits in bone and granulomatous skin disease.
