Blastomycosis Risk Factors
Although almost anyone can become infected with the fungi, those at highest risk for blastomycosis are immunosuppressed individuals and those that live in or visit areas where the fungal spores are plentiful. Since the fungi prefer damp forested areas, people who are hunters, forestry workers, campers, and farmers are at higher risk to get blastomycosis. Blastomycosis can not be spread from person to person or animal to person.
