Abstract

In 1931 the Brasilian doctor Jorge Lobo examined a patient from the Amazon Basin who had nodular confluent skin lesions over the lumbosacral region and encountered a new fungus pathogenic for man Paracoccidioides loboi. This classification was based on the morphological aspect of the parasite which was very similar to Paracoccidioides brasiliensis the causative agent of a systemic mycosis Paracoccidioidomycosis or South American Blastomycosis. Other authors use the name Loboa loboi. The final determination of the name must await cultivation of the fungus.
