Abstract

Abstract NORTH AMERICAN blastomycosis is a disease almost exclusively limited to the United States. Martin and Smith,1 in their exhaustive review of the literature, read of only 2 proved cases reported outside the United States, 1 in Canada and 1 in England. The foreign literature contains many reports of blastomycosis of the Gilchrist or North American type, but the diseases are described and diagnosed so inadequately that they cannot be definitely accepted as the Gilchrist type.2 For example, in no foreign cases are differential cultures described. It is therefore of interest to report the first proved case of North American blastomycosis from the European Continent. REPORT OF A CASE A 24 year old man was inducted into the Army in December 1942. He felt well at that time. In December 1943 he was sent to England, where he remained for nine months. He was then sent to France, and References 1. Martin, D. S., and Smith, D. T.: Blastomycosis (American Blastomycosis, Gilchrist's Disease): I. Review of the Literature , Am. Rev.
