Description: Caption:
Captured prior to beginning any treatment, this image depicted a left lateral view of the head and neck of a male patient, who presented with a fungal infection of the neck that had produced an open, depressed wound in the inframandibular region. This is the same patient seen in PHIL 20424, a view that revealed another ulcerated cutaneous lesion on the man’s face, just inferior to the right angle of his mouth. See PHIL 20425, for a view of this lesion after this patient had begun applying a sulfa-based medication to this wound. The infection, known as paracoccidioidomycosis, which is also known as Lutz-Splendore-Almeida disease, or Brazilian blastomycosis, was caused by the fungal organism, Paracoccidioides brasiliensis.
