Blastomycosis
Definition: Blastomycosis is a rare fungal infection caused by inhaling a fungus ( Blastomyces dermatitidis ), which is found in wood and soil.
Alternative Names: North American blastomycosis; Gilchrist's disease
Causes, incidence, and risk factors: Blastomycosis occurs most often in people living in the south-central and Midwestern US and Canada. Exposure to soil is the key risk factor. The disease usually affects people with compromised immune systems, such as people with HIV or organ transplant recipients. Men are more likely to be affected than women. Lung infection may produce no symptoms, but when the infection is widespread, skin lesions or bone lesions may appear and the urogenital system (bladder, kidney, prostate, testes) may be affected. The incidence of blastomycosis is 1-2 out of every 100,000 people in geographic areas where blastomycosis occurs most frequently. It is even less common outside those areas.

Causes, Incidence, and Risk Factors
Blastomycosis is a rare fungal infection that occurs primarily in the central and southeastern states of the US, Canada, India, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Africa. It is acquired by inhaling fungal particles found in moist soil, particularly amongst decaying vegetation. People with immune system disorders are at highest risk. The lungs are the portal of entry for this infection and are the main organ involved. The fungus may disseminate (spread) to other areas of the body after initial infection in the lungs and affect the skin, bone/joints, genitourinary tract and other systems. Skin disease is primarily a manifestation of disseminated (widespread blastomycosis) and occurs in up to 80% of individuals. Skin lesions may be wartlike or appear as ulcers and may affect the nose and mouth as well.

BACK to previous page BLASTOMYCOSIS IN SMALL ANIMALS What is Blastomycosis? Blastomycosis is a fungal disease caused by the organism Blastomycosis dermatitides It is primarily seen infecting dogs, humans and rarely, cats. How does your pet get the infection? Your pet can become infected by inhaling the organism from the soil. It is not known to be transmitted from individual to individual or from animals to humans. Each individual acquires the infection independently and directly from the environment. It is common to see hunting dogs that root and dig in the ground become infected. New house or cottage building or renovations, or soil excavations, may also expose infected soils from deep below the ground which could increase the chance of your pet getting the infection. Where is Blastomycosis found? Blastomycosis can be found in soils extending from the Mississippi-Missouri-Ohio River basin, which reaches up into the Lake of the Woods area. These areas include Sioux Narrow, Dryden, Red Lake, Kenora and surrounding areas. Blastomycosis grows best during warm moist weather and in acidic soils such as occurs in cedar swamps.

http://www.nwhu.on.ca/blastomycosis.htm
What is blastomycosis? Blastomycosis is an uncommon infection of humans, dogs, cats and other animals caused by the fungus Blastomyces dermatitidis found in soil. It is not a new condition and has been known for many years. Recently, however, some people have become quite sick with blastomycosis. The infection affects the lungs and skin sometimes resulting in pneumonia or crusted, ulcerated pimples. The symptoms often do not appear until weeks or months after exposure. How can you get blastomycosis? You get blastomycosis by breathing in the fungus or getting it on a scrape or cut. The fungus is found in acidic moist soil in parts of Northern Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Quebec and in other areas around the Great Lakes and Mississippi rivers. Since this fungus is in the soil, construction, digging or gardening may cause the fungal spores to be carried into the air and inhaled. You can only get blastomycosis from the fungus that is in the soil or the fungus spores in the air. You cannot get it from another person or an animal. Who is at risk?

Muskoka-Parry Sound Health Unit Blastomycosis What is blastomycosis? Blastomycosis is a flu-like illness and is often diagnosed as pneumonia. People who develop blastomycosis in their lungs may experience sudden fever, cough, chest pain, weight loss, shortness of breath and a general feeling of fatigue. Not all of these symptoms have to be present. Generally, blastomycosis starts in the lungs but on some occasions it can spread to the skin. The individual will develop slowly spreading painless red pimples, which can become elevated, crusty or ulcerated. Lesions are usually found on the face and exposed extremities, although mucosal involvement of the nose, mouth or pharynx may occur. On rare occasions, blastomycosis can spread to the bone, prostate, epididymis and other organs. In some cases, the symptoms can go away by themselves. How is it spread? The spore attaches itself to dust and when the dust is stirred up it can be inhaled. Inhalation of this spore produces a yeast infection in the lungs. Direct contact with blastomycosis through an open wound or puncture could produce a skin infection. Transmission of the disease from animal to human is not possible. How is blastomycosis prevented/treated?

CANINE BLASTOMYCOSIS
What is blastomycosis, and how does an animal get this disease?
Blastomycosis is a fungal disease caused by Blastomyces dermatitidis. This fungus most commonly infects humans and animals through the respiratory tract. After spores are inhaled, they settle in the small airways and begin to reproduce. Subsequent to this, the organism spreads throughout the body to involve many organs. Infrequently, infection occurs through inoculation of an open wound.
Although researchers in human medicine have been mostly unsuccessful in reliably isolating the organism from the environment, it does appear that both humans and animals become infected from particular environmental sources, probably the soil. In the United States, the disease is most prevalent in the warm, moist environment found in the Ohio and Mississippi River valleys. It is very common in the Southeastern United States.
What can I do to rid the environment of the fungal organism?
Nothing. The organism is ubiquitous, meaning it lives everywhere.
What are the signs of this disease?

Blastomyces dermatitidis. It is exceedingly common in Ohio,
Mississippi, St. Lawrence river valleys, the Great lakes region, and along the eastern seaboard. This mold occurs in sandy, acid soils near river valleys or other waterways. It appears to be more common in the fall.
Blastomycosis infects dogs, people, and occasionally cats.
Any dog may contract blastomycosis under the right circumstances, but some are higher risk. Hunting and sporting breeds are often exposed to soil in wet areas. Male dogs are more likely to contract blastomycosis than females. One study found that, while female dogs may have better survival rates with therapy, they are more likely to suffer relapses than males.
All dogs are susceptible to blastomycosis, but those at greatest
risk for infection are two-to-four year old intact males of hunting
or sporting breeds that weigh 50-75 pounds and are exposed to river valleys or lakes during late summer or fall.
