Abstract

Gastrointestinal (GI) histoplasmosis is a rare disease with variable manifestations. We report a case of a male patient who developed disseminated histoplasmosis with prominent manifestations of GI bleeding, and esophagogastroduodenoscopy and colonoscopy revealed atypical ulcers. With the treatment of itraconazole, patient's GI bleeding stopped, and follow up endoscopies revealed resolution of the ulcers.
