We retrospectively reviewed 14 children with active blastomycosis. Pulmonary disease occurred in 86% of the cohort and extrapulmonary dissemination was noted in 46%. Urine blastomycosis or histoplasmosis antigens were positive in all tested patients. Acute kidney injury was common in patients who were treated with amphotericin. Mortality tended to be associated with a delay in diagnosis.
