One hundred years ago Adolpho Lutz published published the frist report of a patient with paracoccidioidomycosis, then referred as mycosis pseudococcidica. in his original article published in April 1908, he accurately informed that "The arrangement of cystic corpuscles is highly characteristic. Generally one finds a large central corpuscle surrounded by small ones, and this feature has always left me under the impression that it is the results of a gemulation process" A new field of scientific research was then opened.
