Back in 1894-1896 many of the first cases of Blastomycosis were reported
from the Chicago area,were the infection is still found along many other
places in the North American continent. The infection is also known as
North American Blastomycosis and Gilchrist's disease.
Good reference for this is: Medical Mycology by K.J. Kwon-Chung
and John E. Bennett. 1992. Lea & Febiger,Philadelphia.
