Resumen

TICHELLIO, A. G.; MANGIATERRA, M.  y  GIUSIANO, G.. Paracoccidioidomycosis in Formosa province (Argentina). Rev. argent. microbiol. [online]. 2008, vol.40, n.1, pp. 24-29. ISSN 1851-7617.

Patients with paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) compatible symptoms who attended Hospital Central de Formosa, were studied during 2 years. Three hundred and thirty five patients were selected, 264 male and 71 female, ages were between 25 and 79 years old. Twenty four patients were diagnosed, the prevalence observed was 7.16%. There was only one female positive case. Most patients (83%) had smoked for more than 10 years, 96% came from a rural area and 63% was alcoholic. Also a case of neuroparacoccidioidomycosis and a juvenile-type PCM case were detected. Specimens of mucocutaneous lesions were 100% positives. Immunodiffusion (IDGA) allowed the diagnostic in 22/249 patients. PCM and others infectious diseases with similar clinical manifestations coexist in Formosa province, for this reason differential diagnostic must be done.
