  • Histoplasma Meningitis

    Histoplasma meningitis (HM) has been reported to occur primarily in association with disseminated histoplasmosis (DH).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Histoplasma meningitis usually occurs in conjunction with disseminated histoplasmosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Among the details: Investigators analyzed CSF from 50 patients with Histoplasma meningitis and 150 controls to evaluate the value of new diagnostic tests, including Histoplasma[mdedge.com]

  • Disseminated Histoplasmosis

[ 170 ] Maintenance[hivwebstudy.org] Fluconazole penetrates the CSF well, but is not highly active against H. capsulatum, and was less active than amphotericin B in an animal model of Histoplasma meningitis ([antimicrobe.org]

  • Fungal Meningitis

    The following fungi are the most common causes of fungal meningitis: Cryptococcus neoformans Histoplasma Coccidioides Blastomyces The overall prevalence of the disease is[everydayhealth.com] And like Histoplasma, Blastomyces can causes an infection — in this case blastomycosis — that can progress to meningitis. What Are the Symptoms of Fungal Meningitis?[everydayhealth.com] Patients with a primary diagnosis of cryptococcal, Coccidioides, Histoplasma, or Candida meningitis were included in the analysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lyme Meningoencephalitis

    Fungal causes of meningitis include infection with Cryptococcus, Histoplasma and Coccidioides species.[patient.info] Many microorganisms can cause subacute or chronic meningitis.[merckmanuals.com] Histoplasma capsulatum is one of the dimorphic fungi that exist in mycelial and yeast forms. It is usually found in soil and can occasionally cause a chronic meningitis.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Intraperitoneal Abscess in the Right Lower Quadrant

    Hepatic involvement can accompany cryptococcal meningitis in the setting of hematogenous dissemination.[hivinsite.ucsf.edu] Opportunistic infections with Histoplasma, Coccidioides, Candida, and Sporothrix organisms occur less commonly.[hivinsite.ucsf.edu]

  • Candidiasis

    Coccidioides meningitis is a life-threatening infection requiring lifelong treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Histoplasmosis is a primary pulmonary infection resulting from inhalation of conidia of Histoplasma capsulatum which convert in vivo into the blastoconidial (budding yeast[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Systemic Candidiasis

    Coccidioides meningitis is a life-threatening infection requiring lifelong treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Histoplasmosis is a primary pulmonary infection resulting from inhalation of conidia of Histoplasma capsulatum which convert in vivo into the blastoconidial (budding yeast[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Encephalitis

    Other causes include: Coccidioides immitis Histoplasma capsulatum Candida species Fungal meningitis is not contagious; it is not spread from person-to-person but occurs when[labtestsonline.org] The most common cause is Cryptococcus neoformans (cryptococcal meningitis), thought to be contracted through inhaling dirt contaminated with bird droppings.[labtestsonline.org]
