A case is reported in a 19-year-old man from India who presented with a soft, fluctuant swelling at the medial canthus of the eye. Fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) showed many single, spherical structures with thick walls. They had basophilic protoplasm and 6 nuclei in the centre; a few showed budding with a broad base. Special stains were used to differentiate Blastomyces dermatitidis.
