Abstract Paracoccidioidomycosis is a systemic fungal infection caused by the thermally dimorphic fungus Paracoccidioides brasiliensis. The authors present a case of a 49-year-old man who developed verrucous lesions on nasal mucosa and on genital localization (inguinal and scrotal), without signs of systemic disease. Direct mycological examination, culture on Sabouraud glucose medium, and biopsy were positive for P. brasiliensis. The interest of this case is the genital localization which is uncommon in this infection. Moreover, there are few cases described in the literature.
