Disseminated histoplasmosis in an immuno-competent young male: role of bone marrow examination in rapid diagnosis
Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
Fungal infections are usually seen in elderly or immuno‐compromised individuals particularly with human immunodeficiency virus infection. In immuno‐competent individuals, they seldom present with overt clinical symptoms. In such cases diagnosis is made by combination of tests along with direct microscopic visualization of the organism. We present a case of immuno‐competent individual who presented with unexplained fever and found to have Histoplasma capsulatum infection on bone marrow examination
