Description:This image depicts the perianal region of a male patient afflicted with a disease known as histoplasmosis, which is caused by the fungal organism, Histoplasma capsulatum.
Histoplasma capsulatum lives in the environment, usually in association with large amounts of bird, or bat droppings. Lung infection can occur after a person inhales airborne, microscopic fungal spores from the environment; however, many people who inhale the spores do not get sick. The symptoms of histoplasmosis are similar to pneumonia, and the infection can sometimes become serious if it is not treated.
