Abstract: Race was studied in 44 patients with Tuberculosis (TB) and 44 with Paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM). They were classified by colour skin and afterwards with family antecedents in white and non-white people. Then they were compared with the country census of 2000, with our hospital outpatients average racial distribution and between both. The TB white people incidence only by colour skin (45.4%) was lower than São Paulo state census (70.4%), hospital (80.7%) and PCM (72.5%). With family antecedents the white rate was lower in TB (27.2%) and PCM (50%) but the difference continuous significant. Despite the difficult of racial classification in our country by colour skin due to miscegenation, the difference between the diseases with patients of similar social-economic pattern may suggest a genetic explanation. © Copyright Moreira Jr. Editora.
