Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Histoplasmosis is caused by the dimorphic fungus, Histoplasma capsulatum. The disease spectrum varies from a mild respiratory infection to a lethal, disseminated form. Involvement of any part of the gastrointestinal tract may occur with the disseminated form, and symptoms reflect that portion involved. A case of malabsorption syndrome occurring during the course of disseminated histoplasmosis is reported, and the literature of gastrointestinal histoplasmosis is reviewed.
