MACALUPU, Susana Zurita. Sporotrichosis and paracoccidioidomycosis in Peru: experiences in prevention and control. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2014, vol.31, n.2, pp.352-357. ISSN 1726-4634.

The epidemiological picture of sporotrichosis and paracoccidioidomycosis in Peru and Latin America is sporadic, fragmented, and geographically limited, mainly due to lack of mandatory reporting and limited diagnostic coverage. However, research contributions related to understanding the interaction of these fungi, the response of the host and the environment, the use of spatial analysis that relates the distribution of these mycoses, population density and climate, contributes to the design of prevention and control strategies of these mycosis and suggest epidemiological risk maps management, based on the habitat of the fungus. This information will be used by doctors, tourists and people living in rural areas where mycoses are endemic. The aim of the paper is to present a review of the topic through research findings that contribute to the prevention and control of these mycosis
