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. Although some may recover completely, the mortality rate (death rate) is about 29%. It can be as high as 40% with patients with AIDS, and 68% with ARDS.
