Cutaneous blastomycosis

Author and Disclosure Information

Abstract

A patient who worked as a landscaper had a solitary lesion of cutaneous blastomycosis on the foot at a site of abrasion from the bark of a tree shrub. The authors postulate that the patient's disease was caused by direct inoculation. The lesion was vaporized with the carbon dioxide laser after initiating systemic ketoconazole therapy.
