ESCOBAR-SALINAS, Jorge Sebastián  and  PERALTA-GIMENEZ, Ruth María. Systemic paraccocidiomycosis in a chronic corticosteroid user. Rev. Inst. Med. Trop. [online]. 2023, vol.18, n.1, pp.86-89. ISSN 1996-3696.

Paracoccidiomycosis is an endemic infection, together with histoplasmosis, they are the most frequent fungal infections in Latin America. This mycosis can be of local or systemic affection, with a marked trophism by the lungs, lymphoid organs, liver, adrenal glands, skin and mucosa. We present the case of an adult male, chronic steroid user, who develops systemic paracoccidiomycosis with pulmonary and adrenal gland involvement with good response to antifungal therapy.
