Central Nervous System Histoplasma-Associated Post-infectious Inflammatory Response Syndrome (Histo-PIIRS).

Owen Dean, Seher Anjum, Bryan Hess, Dima A Hammoud, Deena Athas, Joseph Wheat, Peter R Williamson,

We present a case of central nervous system (CNS) histoplasmosis in a previously healthy adult with hepatitis C (HCV) presenting with neurological symptoms refractory to antifungal therapy and ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunting 4 months after initial diagnosis. Persistent symptoms were thought to be inflammatory rather than infectious given negative cerebrospinal fluid ... Read more >>
