Abstract

The first reported case of disseminated histoplasmosis in Western Australia is described. The diagnosis was delayed because the clinical presentation closely resembled that of tuberculosis, the initial histoplasma serology was negative, and constant severe thrombocytopenia delayed efforts to obtain tissue required for culture and histology. Despite adequate therapy, relapse occurred on one occasion.
