Histoplasmosis is an endemic fungal infection that can involve any organ when disseminated. Although oral, pharyngeal, laryngeal, and endobronchial involvement have been described, direct tracheal involvement has not been reported. We describe the first case of disseminated histoplasmosis with direct involvement of the trachea. The endobronchial manifestations of histoplasmosis are ...

BACKGROUND: Human infection with Histoplasma capsulatum runs the gamut from asymptomatic to disseminated disease. In immunocompromised patients, a tiny inoculum can lead to widespread disseminated infection. Early diagnosis and initiation of treatment is therefore important. OBJECTIVE: To review the cases of histoplasmosis diagnosed on fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) and ...

Genital involvement is an unusual manifestation of histoplasmosis. We report a case of histoplasmosis presenting as granulomatous epididymo-orchitis and review 4 cases reported in the literature.

Trichosporon species are usually opportunistic pathogens. Disseminated trichosporonosis is uncommon but is increasingly reported with a high mortality rate, especially in immunocompromised patients. Although Trichosporon asahii and T. mucoides are known as the most common pathogens of disseminated trichosporonosis, cases of systemic infection due to T. inkin have been reported ...
