Suppurative granulomas are associated with a myriad of infectious conditions, including blastomycosis, coccidiomycosis
, paracoccidiomycosis, phaeohyphomycosis, cryptococcosis, cat-scratch disease, nocardiosis, actinomycosis, and other atypical mycobacterial infections.
Most of deep mycoses are infections of other system with secondary cutaneous lesion which includes maduromycosis, histoplasmosis, blastomycosis, sporotrichosis, phaeohypomycosis and coccidiomycosis
. Intermediate mycoses include Candidiasis and Aspergillosis.
* disseminated mycosis (extrapulmonary histoplasmosis, coccidiomycosis
, also known as valley fever, is a fungus found in the soil of arid areas.

Granulomatous diseases include pulmonary sarcoidosis (Figure 4) hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP), Langerhans-cell histiocytosis (Figure 5, formerly known as pulmonary histiocytosis X or eosinophilic granuloma), and miliary infections caused by tuberculosis, cryptococcosis, coccidiomycosis
, and histoplasmosis.
