Akinom Occasionally, if a lesion is seen on X-ray in a cigarette smoker, the disease may be misdiagnosed as carcinoma, leading to swift excision of the pulmonary lobe involved. An early case concerned a prisoner who was confined to prison during the whole of his likely blastomycotic incubation period. The moist, acidic soil in the surrounding woodland harbors the fungus.

Metrics details Resumen Los estudios experimentales en ratones, cobayos y conejos de la enfermedad producida porParacoccidioides brasiliensis han proporcionado resultados de interes 2, 5, 6, 7 y El agente de la blastomicosis sudamericana posee afinidad por el tejido muscular estriado 5, 6 y Pudimos presumir que lo mismo ocurre en el hombre.
Summary Some experimental studies on the disease produced in mice, guinea-pigs and rabbits byParacoccidioides brasiliensis have been interesting 2, 5, 6, 7 and Evolutive lesions were obtained in mice through the pulmonary route 5. The causal organism of South American blastomycosis has preference for the striated muscular tissue 5, 6 and 12 , the mucocutaneous lesions may be due to the attack of underlying muscles and are of metastatic nature.
We may presume that the same occurs in man. This implies a similar pathogenesis for identical oropharyngeal lesions observed in chronic histoplasmosis and our experiments in mice 9 demonstrate thatHistoplasma capsulatum produces lesions of the striated muscles and that lesions of the epithelium of the tongue coincide with a lesion of the underlying muscular layer. The existance of symptoms due to the attack of striated muscles must be investigated in cases of South American blastomycosis and in acute and chronic cases of histoplasmosis.
