Buikstra found in these prehistoric specimens – spinal TB and blastomycosis. Like Cryptococcus neoformansB dermatitidis has been isolated in the urine after prostatic massage and may cause prostatitis and epididymo-orchitis.

Prediction of disease risk and prevention of disease are both made extraordinarily difficult by our very poor understanding of where anomales how this organism normally grows in nature. An uncommon but very dangerous type of primary blastomycosis manifests as acute respiratory distress syndrome ARDS ; for example, this was seen in 9 of 72 blastomycosis cases studied in northeast Tennessee.

Endemic to portions of North Americablastomycosis causes clinical symptoms similar to histoplasmosis.

However, sometimes blood and sputum cultures may not detect blastomycosis. Ina second species was described in the genus BlastomycesB.
