Hisoplasmosis enteritis

It is a disease mimic Crohns . It is fungal disease make chronic ulceration
in the ileum and may be other places throughout digestive tract. My question

Any more information about this disease is appreciated .

Thanks all

Re: Hisoplasmosis enteritis

Diagnosis is by positive fungal culture or tissue biopsy showing diffuse lymphohistiocytic infiltrates in the mucosa and submucosa. Grocott silver stains will show them appear as round, budding yeast.

I cannot post links, but do a search on histoplasmosis enteritis testing diagnosis...or something similar. Lots of info.

Do you think you have it or do you have it?

It's all a matter of perspective!
