It has been recognised as the asexual state of Ajellomyces dermatitidis.
The lung manifestations range from illness that mimics acute bacterial pneumonia to chronic, destructive lung disease appearing like tuberculosis or lung cancer. Buikstra found in these prehistoric specimens – spinal TB and blastomycosis. In sudamerricana projects Wikimedia Commons.
If true, it would be another severe penalty Late Woodland people had to pay as they shifted to agriculture as a way of life, and it would be a contributing pulmoonar to shortening their lifespans compared to those of the Middle Woodland people.

Blastomycosis – Wikipedia
Commercially available urine antigen testing appears to be quite sensitive in suggesting the diagnosis in cases where the organism is not readily detected. Canadian Medical Association Journal. A review of 36 cases”. Animal fungal diseases Mycosis-related cutaneous conditions. Sherris Medical Microbiology 4th ed.
New England Journal of Medicine. Once suspected, the diagnosis of blastomycosis can usually be confirmed by demonstration of the characteristic broad based budding organisms in sputum or tissues by KOH prep, cytology, or histology. Itraconazole given orally is the treatment of choice for most forms of the disease.
Ketoconazole may also be used. American Journal of Epidemiology. Ethnic group or race is frequently investigated in epidemiological studies of blastomycosis, but is potentially profoundly conflicted by differences in residence and in quality and accessibility of medical care, factors that have not been stringently controlled for to date. The bony lesions in these two diseases are practically identical. Canada Communicable Disease Report. Upper lung lobes are involved somewhat more frequently than lower lobes.
Blastomycosis also affects an indefinitely broad range of mammalian hosts, and dogs in particular are a highly vulnerable sentinel species. Sex is another factor inconstantly linked to contraction of blastomycosis: Blastomycosis is a rare but important fungal infection diagnosed primarily in the south central and midwestern United States but also in the American and Canadian borders of the Great Lakes.
Patients who cannot tolerate deoxycholate formulation of Amphotericin B can be given lipid formulations. Amphotericin B is considerably more toxic, and is usually reserved for sudamreicana patients who are critically ill and those with central nervous system disease. Sporadic cases have been reported in continental Africa the Arabian Peninsula and the Indian subcontinent.
The moist, acidic soil in the surrounding woodland harbors the fungus. A review of patients from Mississippi”. Lawrence River Valley and southward in the territory spanned by the central Appalachian Mountains in the east, to the Mississippi River Valley in the west. Indeed, dust per se or construction potentially linked to dust has been associated with several outbreaks    The data, then, tend to link blastomycosis to all weather, climate and atmospheric conditions except freezing weather, periods of snow cover, and extended periods of hot, dry summer sueamericana in which soil is not agitated.
There are a very small number of cases of human-to-human blastomicosls of B. In lung tissue, they multiply and may disseminate through blood and lymphatics to other blastomicosiis, including the skin, bone, genitourinary tract, and brain.
Extrapulmonary disease can occur with or without concomitant lung disease. Several of the skeletons showed lesions in the spinal vertebrae pul,onar the lower back. There is also a developing profile of urban and other domestic blastomycosis cases, beginning with an outbreak tentatively attributed to construction dust in Westmont, Illinois.

In descending order, cutaneous, osseous, prostatic, and central nervous system involvements are the most frequent manifestations of extrapulmonary blastomycosis. Views Read Edit View history.
Inhaled conidia of B. Blastomycosis was first described by Thomas Casper Gilchrist  in and sometimes goes by the eponym Gilchrist’s disease. Mucorales Mucormycosis Rhizopus oryzae Mucor indicus Lichtheimia corymbifera Syncephalastrum racemosum Apophysomyces variabilis.
Pneumonia is the most common manifestation and the lung is almost always the organ initially infected.
