Abstract

We describe an imported case of histoplasmosis, whose serological profile was established by means of a protein-based microarray platform, the recently described mycoarray. Because of its peculiarities, such a novel tool greatly facilitates the rapid and multiparametric assessment of patients' serological status and lends itself to be employed as an aid in the diagnosis of primary mycoses, especially in nonendemic countries.
