Endoscopic evaluation of the esophagus stomach and duodenum in human paracoccidioidomycosis

Endoscopic evaluation of the esophagus stomach and duodenum in human paracoccidioidomycosis

Arquivos de Gastroenterologia 23(1): 21-25

The upper gastrointestinal tract was investigated endoscopically in 30 patients with paracoccidioidomycosis. Esophagus, stomach and duodenum showed, respectively, 40%, 53% and 43% of endoscopic alterations. The histopathological examination of biopsy tissue revealed no specific lesions in esophagus and stomach, but Paracoccidiodes brasilensis was observed in three cases of duodenal lesions: two cases with mucosal diffuse erosions and one case of duodenal polyp. It is concluded that duodenual paracoccidioidomycosis is not rare and could be revealed by endoscopic examination in patients with disseminated disease.
