Blastomycosis (cont.)

Blastomycosis Prognosis

The prognoses (outcomes) for blastomycosis is variable; about 50% of infections do not even produce symptoms. Those patients diagnosed and treated appropriately usually have a good outcome although they need to take medications for many months. Immunosuppressed patients with blastomycosis have outcomes that range from good to poor; some may recover completely but the mortality rate (death rate) is about 29%, 40% with patients with AIDS, and 68% with ARDS.
