Histoplasma capsulatum in the presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome

American Journal of Ophthalmology
A M Roth

Abstract

I demonstrated Histoplasma capsulatum organisms in disciform macular lesions, as well as a peripapillary lesion and peripheral atrophic scars in both eyes and in the lung of a patient with no history of active histoplasmosis. Autopsy findings were compatible with those of the presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
