Blastomycosis commonly occurs following inhalation of Blastomyces dermatitidis conidia causing a pulmonary infection and can disseminate to extrapulmonary sites. Osseous involvement primarily results from hematogenous spread, but in rare cases, direct inoculation can occur. We describe a case of osseous blastomycosis without pulmonary or disseminated disease successfully treated with posaconazole.

Abstract The lungs are the most frequent site of metastasis of osteosarcomas; therefore, children with osteosarcoma are submitted to CT scans periodically to detect precocious lung nodules. Although children with osteosarcoma have a higher incidence of a second malignancy than the general population, secondary malignancies in the lungs are rare. ...
