Acute paracoccidioidomycosis with duodenal and cutaneous involvement and obstructive jaundice



Acute paracoccidioidomycosis with duodenal and cutaneous involvement and obstructive jaundice



Medical Mycology Case Reports 20: 21-25



Paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) is the most widespread endemic mycosis in LatinAmerica. If PCM is not diagnosed and treated early and adequately, the endemic fungal infection could result in serious sequelae. We report a case of PCM with duodenal and cutaneous involvement simulating cholangitis that was initially misdiagnosed as a lymphoproliferative disease. Clinicians should consider acute paracoccidioidomycosis in the differential diagnosis of jaundice and/or signs/symptoms of cholangitis developing in young patients from paracoccidioidomycosis endemic regions.
