In order to determine the presence of fungi in clinical samples of the respiratory system, 322 patients with pneumopathies were surveyed. All of them had been hospitalised in the Pneumology Unit of the Otavio de Freitas
General Hospital, Recife, PE, Brazil. Paracoccidioidomycosis was diagnosed in 7 male patients (2.1%), and involved with work in the rural zone. In 6 cases there was a "diagnostic mistake" between pulmonary tuberculosis and
pulmonary paracoccidioidomycosis; in 1 case the association of these two pneumopathies was verified.
