“…Mucocutaneous involvement occurs in a wide variation of frequencies according to geographical regions (1-7% in USA and 17-93% in Latin America) [20,[32][33][34][35][36][37][38][39], which could be explained by variations in virulence between North and Latin American Histoplasma strains [40]. Another explanation would be the difference in access to HIV diagnosis, medical mycology facilities, and the physicians' awareness regarding the diagnosis of histoplasmosis [6].…”

“…The acute phase is followed by a chronic phase, which has three forms: indeterminate, cardiac, and digestive. The indeterminate chronic form is a long-lasting asymptomatic phase, when patients present reactive serologic tests for Chagas disease but there is no evidence of damage to any organ [3-5]. However, two or more decades after infection, 20 to 30% of the patients will progress to the cardiac form of the disease, when the majority of the deaths and severe complications related to the disease occur [6-8].…”

“…However, four of these had to be excluded because, although there were compatible clinical and radiological criteria, laboratory confirmation revealed positive results only for the immunodiffusion test. Of the six cases found, two have previously been reported in the literature, (2) and four are reported in the present study: CASE 1-A 69-year-old male Caucasian, resident of the city of São Leopoldo, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul (RS) and a shoemaker, was admitted to the hospital with dyspnea, productive cough, fever and weight loss. The patient had been smoking 20 cigarettes a day for 47 years and had been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease a long time prior.…”
