Paraccocidioidomycosis is the most frequently found endemic systemic mycosis in Brazil. No symptoms are observed in the early phases of the disease. As the disease progresses, the patient may present disseminated involvement, but bone involvement is extremely rare. The present report is aimed at evaluating bone changes found on imaging studies in a patient with osteomyelitis of the wrist as a result of disseminated paracoccidioidomycosis.
