The infant pictured here, had been hospitalized due to a disseminated histoplasmosis infection. Note the areas of skin discoloration dispersed over all regions of the patient’s body, which are known as purpura, as well as other skin lesions, and the pen markings on the abdomen, made during hospitalization, indicating the enlargement of the infant's spleen and liver, known respectively as splenomegaly, and hepatomegaly. See PHIL 15361, 19422, and 20335, for additional views of this patient’s condition.
