Abstract

Histoplasma capsulatum is a mycotic organism that exists in two distinct forms. The mold form is found in the soil, often in areas where bird and bat feces are located. The excrement is found to enhance growth of the fungus. The yeast form is located in infected living tissue. In the U.S., most cases are found along the Ohio, Missouri, and Mississippi River valleys and usually involve the immunocompromised population including children, the elderly or HIV-infected humans.
