Paracoccidioidomycosis is a chronic, subacute or rarely acute mycosis, with visceral and cutaneous involvement. It is potentially fatal. Children account for about 5-10% of cases. In this study, we describe the relevance of discussing possible differential diagnoses as well as the importance of early treatment.

Keywords : child; granuloma; paracoccidioidomycosis.
