|Pulmonary paracoccidioidomycosis: an imaging dilemma.|
Paracoccidioidomycosis is the most common systemic mycosis in Latin America. Although lungs are the primary target of this disease, its polymorphic presentation represents a challenge both for clinicians and radiologists; however, proper recognition of imaging patterns along with identification of epidemiological risk factors may allow to reach a correct diagnosis. Accordingly, radiologists play a very important role in the management of these patients since an early diagnosis facilitates a better therapeutic approach with subsequent improvement in morbidity and mortality.
