Disseminated histoplasmosis is an invasive fungal infection documented in patients with impaired cellular immunity coming from endemic areas (America, Asia, Africa). We report two cases of disseminated histoplasmosis in AIDS patients paradigmatic of the multifaceted nature of the disease, which may be an expression either of an advanced state of immunosuppression or the immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS).

Abstract

Disseminated histoplasmosis is an invasive fungal infection documented in patients with impaired cellular immunity coming from endemic areas (America, Asia, Africa). We report two cases of disseminated histoplasmosis in AIDS patients paradigmatic of the multifaceted nature of the disease, which may be an expression either of an advanced state of immunosuppression or the immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS).
