Cutaneus BlastomycosisA 32-year old woman presented with a new skin lesion on her face. Four months previously, the patient was diagnosed with Behcet disease based on pulmonary embolism, inflammatory arthritis, oral ulcers, and a positive pathergy test. She was treated with adalimumab, with full resolution of the arthritis and aphthous ulcers, however, one month after beginning therapy, she noticed skin lesion on her left cheek (Figure 1). The lesion was scraped for fungal culture, which was positive for Blastomyces dermatidis and was confirmed by DNA probes. The patient was treated with itraconazole and had improvement by 4-months follow up (Figure 2).
