COSTA, Paulo Sérgio Gonçalves da et al. Parinaud's oculoglandular syndrome associated with paracoccidioidomycosis. Rev. Inst. Med. trop. S. Paulo [online]. 2002, vol.44, n.1, pp. 49-52. ISSN 0036-4665. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0036-46652002000100008.
The authors report one case of Parinaud's oculoglandular syndrome associated with Paracoccidioides brasiliensis infection. No other medical report of this condition was found in the medical literature available at Index Medicus and Medline. The eye involvement has been rather uncommon in paracoccidioidomycosis and this report emphasizes the possibility of this kind of presentation making it also necessary to include paracoccidioidomycosis among the several known causes of Parinaud's oculoglandular syndrome.
Keywords : Parinaud's oculoglandular syndrome; Conjunctivitis; Paracoccidioidomycosis.
