Histoplasmosis - Causes, Symptoms and Treatment


Definition


Histoplasmosis , also called as Darling's disease , is a disease caused when airborne spores of the fungus Histoplasma capsulatum are inhaled into the lungs.This infectious disease primarily affects the lungs & sometimes can spread to other parts of the body. This kind of the disease is known as disseminated histoplasmosis, and it can be critical if untreated.


Histoplasma capsulatum is a microscopic dimorhous fungus that grow stronger in moderate temperatures and moist environments and appears as yeast at body temperature in mammals. Histoplasma capsulatum is commonly found throughout the world in river valleys and soil where chickens, pigeons, starlings, blackbirds, and bat droppings accumulate, is released into the air when soil is disturbed by plowing fields, sweeping chicken coops, or digging holes.


The soil in indigenous region gives an acidic damp environment with high organic content that is good for mycelial production. Highly contaminated soil is found near areas inherent by bats and birds. Birds cannot be infected by the fungus because of their high body temperatures, but they do carry it on their feathers.But bats can become infected because they have a lower body temperature than birds, and they spread the fungus through droppings.


Causes


Histoplasmosis is produced by a microscopic dimorhous fungus Histoplasma capsulatum . The fungus produces spores that can be inhaled when they get into the air.
