Abstract

CUBAS, W. Samir; JIMENEZ, Gerardo  and  VEGA, Juan. Skin lesions of a disseminated histoplasmosis in Peru. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2017, vol.34, n.6, pp.613-614. ISSN 0716-1018.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-10182017000600613.

The dermatological manifestations of disseminated histoplasmosis present in about 17% of the cases, is a challenge for its diagnosis. We report the case of a patient from the northern coast of Peru, who presented diffuse dermal lesions, erythema-violaceous nodules, and ulcers histopathologically compatible with the infection of the genus Histoplasma var. capsulatum

Keywords : Mycosis; skin diseases; histoplasmosis.
