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 ...
