Dr Trisha Macnair responds
Histoplasmosis is an infection with the fungus Histoplasma capsulatum. It's a common problem in the US particularly in a region now known as the 'Histo belt', which includes Arkansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Tennessee, and West Virginia, where as many as 90 per cent of the population have had an infection. The tiny spores of histoplasmosis are carried in the air and breathed in to cause an initial (or primary) infection in the lungs. This is usually very mild and most people only feel as thought they have little more than a bit of a cold. Their immune system soon deals with the infection and it may never even be properly diagnosed. However, a few people develop eye or ocular problems. The initial symptoms in the eye usually settle without needing treatment, leaving only tiny scars known as histo spots .But years later the disease may re-emerge to cause serious complications.

Testing field samples for H. capsulatum will be impractical in most situations. Consequently, when thorough testing is not done, the safest approach is to assume that the soil in regions where H. capsulatum is endemic and any accumulations of bat droppings or bird manure are contaminated with H. capsulatum and to take appropriate exposure precautions. Testing field samples for H. capsulatum will be impractical in most situations. Risk of Histoplasmosis NIOSH and the National Center for Infectious Diseases provide a partial list of occupations with risks for exposure to H. capsulatum spores. The list includes:

Histoplasmosis is a fungal infection that affects the lungs and may occasionally invade other parts of the body. It is an uncommon disease. In 1999, there were 15 cases reported among New York City residents (rate of 0.2 cases per 100,000 persons). Who gets Histoplasmosis? Anyone can get Histoplasmosis. It is recognized more often in immune compromised individuals, such as AIDS patients. Birds (especially chickens), bats, dogs, cats, rats, skunks, possum, foxes, and other animals can get Histoplasmosis and may have a role in spreading the disease. How is Histoplasmosis spread? The disease is acquired by inhaling the spore stage of the fungus. Outbreaks may occur in groups with common exposures to bird or bat droppings or recently disturbed, contaminated soil found in chicken coops, caves, etc. Person-to-person spread of Histoplasmosis does not occur.

Ocular Histoplasmosis Syndrome

The fungus may affect the eye by causing small areas of inflammation and scarring of the retina. Scarring in the peripheral area of the retina may have little or no impact on vision, while a central scar affecting the macula may cause a prominent blind spot. Most people with histo spots in the retina are totally unaware of their presence unless the central vision is affected.

DESCRIPTION: Disease of the choroid; caused by an invasion of a fungal organism; transmitted by airborne spores found in dried animal excrement; the peripheral fundus has "punched-out" spots similar to healed chorioretinal lesions, but smaller and less pigmented. Macular involvement may occur later (believed to be a result of earlier choroidal sensitization and subsequent reinfection); these macular lesions may progress to hemorrhagic detachments.

HISTOPLASMOSIS About the Disease
Histoplasmosis (histo) is a fungal infection caused by the fungus Histoplasma capsulatum . It's found in soil that contains a buildup of bird or bat droppings or guano that has accumulated over a period of years. Histo may also be found in chicken houses, barns, attics or anywhere bats have lived or birds have roosted for an extended period of time. Histo is transmitted when people breathe air containing the fungus, which can occur in any place where there is a great amount of bird or bat droppings, or even up to several miles from that place if the contaminated soil is aerosolized, such as during an excavation for a building site. Most people exposed to the infectious spores do not develop symptoms, but some may complain of fever and other self-limiting flu-like symptoms. If infected, a person may experience histoplasmosis differently depending on factors such as whether the infected person is healthy, how many fungal spores the person inhaled, and whether or not the infected person has a compromised immune system. In rare instances, some people may develop pneumonia or another infection that could be life threatening. Illness may not appear until years after leaving an area where histo was acquired. People in which this may occur normally have ill-functioning immune systems, such as people undergoing cancer treatment or those with AIDS.

Although caving in Jamaica is a thrilling experience there is one big danger: HISTOPLASMOSIS!!
  • Histo-what? histoplasmosis is a fungal infection that converts to a yeast infection within one's body. The disease is a non-transmittable acute often self-limiting infection of the lungs resulting from unusually heavy inhalation of the airborne spores of the fungus Histoplasma capsulatum. O.K. histoplasmosis, but what has this to do with cavers? The growing conditions for the fungus are warmth (more than 20 - 24 °C), moisture and soils with lots of humus and animal excrement (especially the excrement of bats and blackbirds). That's why the thick layers of guano in the Jamaican bat caves are an ideal breeding ground for this fungus. Other high-risk zones are old chicken houses, barns, belfries, pigeon lofts,... anywhere that there is soil with an accumulation of bat and/or bird excrement. Do you find it only in Jamaica?

Colorado tick fever
Colorado tick fever is an acute viral infection transmitted by the bite of the Dermacentor andersoni tick.
Alternative Names
Mountain tick fever; Mountain fever; American mountain fever
This disease is limited to the western US and is most prevalent from March to September, with the highest numbers of infections occurring in May and June. Symptoms start about 3 to 6 days after the tick bite. Symptoms of fever continue for 3 days, stop, then recur 1 to 3 days later for another few days. Risk factors are recent outdoor activity and recent tick bite . The incidence is high in Colorado, where up to 15% of regular campers show past exposure (based on antibodies). It is much less common in the rest of the US.
