Health care providers in the areas where histoplasmosis is not endemic can benefit greatly from understanding the clinical presentation, diagnosis and management of disseminated histoplasmosis as patients from the endemic areas may travel to and require medical attention in areas of low disease prevalence. Use of effective diagnostic tools such as Histoplasma antigen detection can aid in providing timely and appropriate therapy.
