Histo – the short name for histoplasmosis – is a deceiver. It used to be thought rare. Only 71 cases were known to doctors in the United States up to 1945. Today an estimated fifty million Americans are believed to have been infected with it. Histoplasmosis used to be considered a fatal disease. Today, among the millions infected, there are very few fatalities. Histoplasmosis is a masquerader. The "summer flu" that Midwesterners used to get often is now thought to he been histoplasmosis. The disease is not "catching" from someone who has it, as tuberculosis is – but many times it has been mistaken for TB, as well as other diseases. What Causes Histoplasmosis? Histoplasmosis is caused by a fungus (mold), an extremely simple form of plant life. (Other familiar fungi are mushrooms, yeast and mildew.) The particular fungus, or plantæ, that causes this disease is known as histoplasmosisplasma capsulatum. It is tiny and light enough toloat in the air when stirred up with dust. Once it is breathed in, the fungus gets down into the lungs. In effect, it takes root there like a seed and continues to live. The tiny plants increase in number within the lungs simply by dividing themselves in two – over and over again.

Around the world, hundreds of thousands of people each year are affected by a fungal infection called Histoplasmosis. In many areas of South America, Asia, Europe, Africa and East Central United States, the disease has been found in the droppings of domestic birds, such as fowls as well as starlings and other birds which often nest around houses. To humans this microscopic fungus is potentially fatal if the infection is not treated. At this stage you are probably saying to yourself, "what has this to do with caving".? Evidence exists that the fungus Histoplasma capulatum grows in guano, (bat droppings) and that it may be spread by bats flying from one roost cave to another. The fungus can survive in the intestinal contents of bats as well as transmitted to other locations by wind. To date the fungus has been detected in some caves inhabited by the Bent Wing Bat (Miniopterus schreibersii blepotis) however there is no conclusive evidence that it is confined to guano of this bat species. Other names for this disease include:- "Histo", "cave disease", "cave fever", "Darling's disease", "Ohio Valley disease, "Tingo Maria fever", "reticuloendotheliosis" and "reticuloendothelial cytomycosis".

Text size: S M L Health Funding News Laboratories ... Health Information Histoplasmosis Related Topics: On this page: What is histoplasmosis? Histoplasmosis is a disease caused when airborne spores of the fungus Histoplasma capsulatum are inhaled into the lungs, the primary infection site. This microscopic fungus, which is found throughout the world in river valleys and soil where bird or bat droppings accumulate, is released into the air when soil is disturbed by plowing fields, sweeping chicken coops, or digging holes. Histoplasmosis is often so mild that it produces no apparent symptoms. Any symptoms that might occur are often similar to those from a common cold. In fact, if you had histoplasmosis symptoms, you might dismiss them as those from a cold or flu, since the body's immune system normally overcomes the infection in a few days without treatment. However, histoplasmosis, even mild cases, can later cause a serious eye disease called ocular histoplasmosis syndrome (OHS), a leading cause of vision loss in Americans ages 20 to 40.

HISTOPLASMOSIS What is histoplasmosis? Histoplasmosis is an infection caused by a fungus, Histoplasma capsulatum . The principal habitat for this fungus is soil enriched by bird droppings and in bat droppings. In the United States, the fungus is found most often along the Mississippi and Ohio river valleys, but also is present in other central, southeastern and mid-Atlantic states. In people, it affects the lungs and may occasionally invade other parts of the body. It is an uncommon disease with generally fewer than 50 human cases reported in Illinois each year. Dogs, cats, rats, skunks, opossum, foxes and other animals also can get histoplasmosis. Who gets histoplasmosis? Anyone can get histoplasmosis. In some areas where the fungus is prevalent, 80 percent or more of the population has been exposed to infection through breathing in airborne spores. The initial infection often occurs without causing symptoms, and most persons usually will not develop subsequent disease, unless the exposure was heavy. Long-term smokers and those with preexisting lung disease may be at higher risk for developing the disease.

Histoplasmosis is an infection caused by a fungus. It is commonly found in the soil in parts of the Midwestern United States, Haiti and in the southern parts of Ontario and Quebec where there is contamination with bird and bat droppings. This may include buildings where birds and bats nest. It is relatively rare in most other parts of Canada. This fungus enters the body most commonly through the lungs (breathing in particles of the contaminated soil). It can be in your body for several years and then start to cause symptoms as the immune system weakens. Symptoms of Histoplasmosis do not usually appear until the CD4 counts have dropped below 100. It is not contagious from one person to another. What do I look for?
