Histoplasmosis mimicking vasculitis of the central nervous system

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

10 Scopus citations


We describe a case of disseminated histoplasmosis that was erroneously diagnosed as central nervous system vasculitis and treated with immunosuppressive therapy. Our case emphasizes the importance of excluding infections before initiating treatment for presumed central nervous system vasculitis. Clinical clues to underlying Histoplasma infections are also discussed.
