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?
