Blastomycosis: diagnostic difficulties.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  7221627     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
In five cases of blastomycosis, invasive procedures were required before the diagnosis was established; these included thoracotomy in two cases and craniotomy in a third case. Radiologic signs in blastomycosis are nonspecific, and the presentations of the disease may be protean and unusual. Certain factors and radiologic appearances should alert the physician and radiologist to the diagnosis.
