Paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) is an endemic disease restricted geographically to Latin America. Brazil accounts for about 80 % of the reported cases, and lungs are most frequently affected. A suggestive radiograph of PCM may only be seen late in the course of the disease. At the beginning, it mimics tuberculosis. On the other hand, pleural effusion on rare occasions has been reported in PCM. For this reason, we report two cases with such uncommon manifestation. Our first patient presented pleural effusion probably caused by PCM (a previously unreported cause of lung mass accompanied by effusion); the second with proved pleural effusion due to PCM. A systematic review of the literature was done.
