We report a case of disseminated paracoccidioidomycosis, initially suggestive of metastatic lung cancer. The infection was associated with strongyloides hyperinfestation as a result of iatrogenic hypercorticoidism. Examination of a smear prepared from aspirated tracheobronchial secretion and stained by Grocott-methenamine-silver revealed structures consistent with Paracoccidioides brasiliensis and Strongyloides stercoralis. At autopsy, the central nervous system and pulmonary paracoccidioidomycosis, as well as pulmonary strongyloidiasis, were confirmed, without evidence of malignant cells.
