Resumen

Introduction and importance: Paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) is a systemic fungal infection, primarily affecting the respiratory tract. Extra pulmonary presentation is rare, representing less than 1% of cases (about 1 in every 200 cases). Case presentation: We present a case of a 73-year-old male with acute surgical abdomen secondary to Intestinal Paracoccidioidomycosis requiring intestinal resection and postoperative antifungal therapy. Conclusion: Intestinal Paracoccidioidomycosis represents a rare pathology with challenging diagnostic approach due to its frequency and nonspecific clinical manifestations. Extra pulmonary presentation is rare, but it should be considered in endemic regions.
