Granulomatous Liver Disease Due to Histoplasma Capsulatum Infection in AIDS Patient
American Journal of Gastroenterology
Introduction: Histoplasmosis is endemic mycoses caused by the fungus Histoplasma Capsulatum. It is commonly a pulmonary disease in immunocompetent patients, but it is more likely to be disseminated in AIDS patients. Although gastrointestinal involvement is common in disseminated Histoplasmosis, the clinical manifestations are rare and nonspecific, making the diagnosis difficult.
