The endemic mycoses are diverse group of fungi that cause disease in healthy and immunocompromised hosts. Typically, they occupy a specific ecologic niche in the environment, and they exhibit temperature dimorphism. This presentation discusses histoplasmosis, paracoccidioidomycosis and coccidioidomycosis in transplant patients, with a focus on emerging infections in Central and South America.
