A case of African histoplasmosis from Sudan


, : A case of African histoplasmosis from Sudan. Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 82(3): 503-505

The first authentic case of African histoplasmosis from the Sudan is reported. The patient came from Dindir, along the southern part of the Blue Nile River. He had cutaneous and visceral leishmaniasis as well as the cutaneous form of African histoplasmosis. The latter was proved by culture and histopathology to be due to Histoplasma duboisii. The fungus was confined to the skin. H. duboisii may be more prevalent, and further studies in Dindir area are needed.
