Abstract

A 39-year-old woman infected with human immunodeficiency virus had disseminated histoplasmosis that presented with nodules on her tongue. This is the seventh reported case of biopsy- and/or culture-proven oropharyngeal histoplasmosis in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. We review those previous reports and discuss the clinical features of disseminated histoplasmosis in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.
