a genus of imperfect fungi that proliferate by multiple budding yeast cells in the tissues. P. brasilien´sis causes paracoccidioidomycosis.
Paracoccidioides brasilien´sis the etiologic agent of paracoccidioidomycosis. Called also Blastomyces brasiliensis.

Par·a·coc·cid·i·oi·des bra·sil·i·en·sis

(par'ă-kok-sid'ē-oy'dēz bră-sil'ē-en'sis),
A dimorphic fungus that causes paracoccidioidomycosis. In tissues and on enriched culture medium at 37°C, it grows as large spherical or oval cells that bear single or several buds and usually is identified by this characteristic; at lower temperatures, it grows slowly as a white mold with minimal sporulation.
