A case of adiaspiromycosis in a 19-year-old farmer in Honduras is reported. The patient had complained of a chronic pulmonary confition that became progressively worse over a period of several months. Left basal bronchiectasis was diagnosed, and the inferior lobe of the left lung was removed. Numerous tubercules containing adiaspores of the fungus Emmons and Jellison, 1960 were found throughout the tissues. However, the primary cause of the pulmonary disease appeared to be a chronic purulent bronchiolitis of unknown etiology and a concomitant lipoid pneumonia. This apparently is the second recorded case of adiaspiromycosis in man; the first case was from France.
