A medical definition of histoplasmosis will sound something like this, “A rare lung infection, which is the result of breathing Histoplasma capsulatum fungal spores.” The elements that cause the specific disease are spread in the specific regions of the world, meaning not the entire population may catch this infection. In most cases, the responsible elements are in the soil. However, the flying species of animals like bats and specific birds may be the carriers as well.
However, one can distribute the infection by traveling there and getting sick. In many cases, luckily, there are no adverse consequences, and histoplasmosis may go without any special treatment. Only patients with the weak immune system and resistance can face the adverse consequences of this infection. In case the infection develops as the organism cannot fight it, it may soon cover almost all parts of the body. 10-15% of the patients suffer from the severe skin lesions over the body surface.
