Histoplasma capsulatum is an endemic fungus found in moist, fertile soil; in North America, it is most prevalent in the river valleys of the central United States. Most primary infections in the immunocompetent host are asymptomatic or are thought to be a flu-like illness. Disseminated histoplasmosis most commonly occurs in ...

The usual manifestation of histoplasmosis is in the form of respiratory illness. We report the case of a 67-year-old man who presented with chronic diarrhea and did not respond to the conventional treatment, including that for Clostridium difficile. He was found to have isolated colonic histoplasmosis infection, which was treated ...

Amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) is characterized by the passage of amniotic fluid (AF) into the maternal circulation during or just after childbirth. AFE is a rare disorder occurring in 1/8,000 to 1/80,000 deliveries but with a maternal morbidity ranging from 26% in a recent report to 86% in earlier ones. ...

Menstrual Psychosis is a unique disorder (Altschule et al, 1963). Over the last 150 years, sporadic case reports of this disorder are found in the literature. As yet, the standard psychiatric diagnostic nomenclature i.e. DSM, ICD-10 does not acknowledge its individuality. We report a 16-year-old female patient who was treated ...

Coccidioidomycosis is a fungal infection endemic to the desert regions of the southwestern United States. Pulmonary symptoms predominate and are usually mild and self-limited. Dissemination is rare in the immunocompetent host. We present a case of disseminated, peritoneal coccidioidomycosis diagnosed during routine inguinal herniorrhaphy in an adult male. The current ...

The presence of pneumocephalus without a history of intracranial or intrathecal procedures is a significant radiographic finding. Although pneumocephalus means a violation of the dural barrier or the presence of infection, intravascular pneumocephalus is different from intraparenchymal pneumocephalus and its benign nature must be known in the presence of intravenous ...

Histoplasmosis is the most common cause of fungal infection in the Ohio River Valley of the United States. Ninety-nine per cent of patients exposed to histoplasmosis develop only subclinical infections. Liver involvement is common in disseminated histoplasmosis, which usually originates in the lungs. There has been only one prior case ...

Disseminated pagetoid reticulosis is considered to have a poor prognosis. Some authors regard this disease as an epidermotropic type of mycosis fungoides rather than a distinct entity. We report the case of an 83-year-old woman with disseminated pagetoid reticulosis who subsequently developed tumoral lesions and died soon after the appearance ...

Despite remarkable advances in detection and therapy, coccidioidomycosis remains a persistent threat to military troops deployed in endemic areas. Pregnant women, immunocompromised hosts, and dark-skinned persons, particularly those of Filipino, African, Hispanic or Asian ancestry, are at greatest risk for disseminated coccidioidomycosis. The ethnically diverse military forces have susceptible active ...

Acute disseminated histoplasmosis is a frequent condition in HIV carriers. Thirty-five cases of endocarditis caused by Histoplasma capsulatum have been reported in international literature, and all these descriptions correspond to a context of subacute disseminated histoplasmosis.

Envenomation by the brown recluse spider (Loxosceles reclusa) is associated with shock, significant hemolysis, renal insufficiency, and disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). Shock has never been associated with envenomation by L arizonica, a related species indigenous to Arizona, southern California, and northwestern Mexico. We report the case of a 13-year-old girl, ...

The diagnosis of sarcoidosis in patients with disseminated histoplasmosis remains controversial. It has been suggested that the immune abnormalities in sarcoidosis predispose one to disseminated histoplasmosis. Two cases have been reported that indicate a possible relationship between the two diseases. This is a case of sarcoidosis complicated with disseminated histoplasmosis ...
