Paracoccidioidomycosis oral manifestations

Paracoccidioidomycosis is a systemic disease that mainly involves the lungs, spreading later to other organs and systems. The most common oral manifestations are ulcerated and erythematous lesions, with an irregular surface, raised and hardened edges, being easily confused with other lesions. Although well described in the literature, most dental surgeons have never seen or diagnosed paracoccidioidomycosis. This study has the objective of to make a briefly review of the literature and present a clinical case about the oral manifestations of paracoccidioidomycosis, reinforcing the attention of oral health professionals to this disease.
