To avoid confusion with North American blastomycosis, it is better that this disease, which has in the past been called South American or Brazilian blastomycosis, should be known as paracoccidioidomycosis. The disease extends from Mexico to Chile, with its highest incidence in the state of Sao Paolo in Brazil. It has probably never been acquired naturally outside this area.
