, : Results of miconazole therapy in twenty-eight patients with paracoccidioidomycosis (South American blastomycosis). Proceedings of the Royal Society of Medicine 70 Suppl 1: 24-28

The 28 patients were all males aged 34-66 yr, and they exhibited various clinical forms of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis infection which was treated with miconazole orally and/or intravenously.Epidemiology, previous therapy, diagnosis, immunology and results of miconazole therapy are discussed.
