Histological diagnosis of large form histoplasmosis. Apropos of 2 cases

Histological diagnosis of large form histoplasmosis. Apropos of 2 cases

Archives d' Anatomie et de Cytologie Pathologiques 24(6): 463-467

Two cases of Histoplasma duboisii infection in Africans living in France are reported. In 1 case diagnosis was easy, being based on the presence of numerous yeasts within a gangliar granuloma. In the other case biopsy showed follicular lesions with necrotic foci, but without detectable fungi. A 2nd biopsy revealed numerous yeasts within a necrotic suppurated tissue, bordered by a polymorphous granuloma.
