Brief Answer:
No such thing as cystomycosis

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome.

Thank you for writing in.

In humans, Blastomycosis is a fungal infection caused by the inhalation of the infection-causing organism in its natural form found in the soil. It is also called Gilchrist's disease or North American blastomycosis or even Blastomycetric dermatitis.

There exists no such thing called cystomycosis in humans, so No ma'am, they are not the same.

Hope this information helps you, please feel free to write back to me for any further information.

Best wishes.
