Histoplasma is a dimorphic fungus. The mold or mycelial form exists in soil contaminated with droppings of bats or birds such as starlings or chickens, where it absorbs nutrients from dead organic matter and produces infectious spores. When these spores are inhaled and encounter the warm moist environment of the lungs, they undergo a transformation to the yeast or parasitic form.
