Treatment and Outcomes for Blastomycosis

Blastomycosis requires treatment with antifungal medicine that must be prescribed by your doctor. For people with mild or moderate infections, itraconazole is commonly used. People with more severe infections may require more aggressive treatment with amphotericin B. Newer triazole antifungal medications, such as voriconazole and posaconazole, are also available, but their role in treating blastomycosis is still being determined.

For healthcare providers: for the most up-to-date treatment and practice guidelines can be found at the Infectious Disease Society of America's [PDF - 12 pages] website.
