Ana Clara Luz Prates, Vinícius Moreira Paladino, Tulio Vieira Mendes, Daniel Almeida da Costa*, Gabriel S. Thiago Cavaleiro
Pulmonary histoplasmosis is a common endemic pathology, caused by the fungus Histoplasma capsulatum, which can be found in chicken coops, hollow trees and mines. The infectious process occurs through the aspiration of conidia and the proliferation of the fungus in the organism. Most of histoplasmosis is an asymptomatic and self-limited lung infection, but it can present a picture similar to pneumonia, evolving with headache, dyspnea, fever and dry cough. Its diagnosis consists of suggestive imaging tests, associated with laboratory tests that confirm the suspicion. Treatment consists of prescription of antifungal drugs for a long time and serial follow-up. Another common lung condition today is that caused by SARS-Cov-2, a pandemic pathology, with different manifestations from mild symptoms to severe acute respiratory syndrome. Its diagnosis ideally consists of associating symptoms with RT-PCR and imaging tests. The therapy used is symptomatic medication, corticosteroids and prophylactic anticoagulation, but still under study.[Full Text Article]
