Abstract: A case of atypical disseminated cutaneous histoplasmosis in a five-year old, otherwise healthy child, native and resident in São Paulo metropolitan area is reported. Cutaneous lesions were clinically atypical. Histologic examination disclosed a granulomatous reaction but no fungal structures could be demonstrated by specific staining nor by immunohistochemical reaction. The fungus was isolated from biopsy material on two different occasions, confirming diagnosis of an unusual fungal infection. The fungus, orig… Show more

“…The Peruvian individuals had larger yeast cells than typical H. capsulatum and reminded mycologists of another fungal pathogen, Lacazia loboi , but clearly belong in the genus Histoplasma . Isolate H153 was also phenotypically distinct, having unusually large macroconidia, not converting to yeast at 37 °C and causing an atypical, disseminated cutaneous histoplasmosis (Lacaz et al . 1999).…”
