|Description:||This image from 1965 depicted a right anterior-oblique view of a Sao Paulo, Brazilian man’s face that displayed pathologic changes due of the mycotic infection known as "Lobo's disease", or lacaziosis, and is caused by the fungus, Lacazia loboi. Note the nodular lesions beneath his right eye, as well as between his nose and upper lip.|
Lobomycosis is a chronic inflammatory fungal infection, and is usually found in humans, and bottle-nosed dolphins. Environmentally acquired, this infection is not known to be passed from human to human contact. Lesions may appear on the ears, face, arms and legs, and assume a nodular morphology.
