We had a case of non resolving pneumonia in a healthy young patient, which was ultimately diagnosed with blastomycosis.

Take home points from today:

  • Recognize delayed resolution of pneumonia

  • Have a systematic differential diagnosis based on etiology, host, complications and noninfectious etiologies

  • Recognize the difference in geographic, clinical and laboratory presentation of endemic mycoses as well as the cross-reactivity of assays
