Abstract

Current practice guidelines recommend that pulmonary blastomycosis be treated with antifungal agents such as amphotericin B and itraconazole. Echinocandins are not recommended because of poor in vitro activity against Blastomyces dermatitidis and lack of supporting clinical data. We report a case of chronic pulmonary blastomycosis treated successfully with caspofungin.
