Abstract

Paracoccidioidomycosis is a dimorphic fungal infection endemic in Latin America. We report a patient with a history of pulmonary paracoccidioidomycosis who presented with relapsed disease in the central nervous system 4 years after initial treatment. We review current treatment strategies for paracoccidioidomycosis and neuroparacoccidioidomycosis.
