Histoplasmosis of the nervous system
Meningitis is the most common clinical manifestation of CNS histoplasmosis, which can also cause focal brain and spinal cord lesions (histoplasmomas), stroke syndromes, encephalitis, cerebritis and abscesses. CNS involvement can occur in both disseminated disease and in isolation, although isolated cases are rare. Immunocompromised patients are at greater risk for disseminated infection.
