  • Blastomyces dermatitidis is an environmental fungus endemic to parts of Eastern North America that notably causes pulmonary infection in humans and other animals with the potential for extrapulmonary spread, particularly in immunocompromised hosts. However, it rarely presents with genitourinary (GU) tract involvement. Herein, we present a unique case of a 37-year-old immunocompetent male with genitourinary blastomycosis with the initial presentation of a scrotal abscess.
