Recruitment lecture 10.7.2019

First recruitment day! today 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
