abstract

  • Endobronchial histoplasmosis may mimic primary bronchogenic carcinoma, presenting as a fixed obstructing endobronchial lesion associated with hemoptysis; the latter potentially necessitating surgical intervention. Endobronchial histoplasmosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of obstructing endobronchial lesions associated with hemoptysis, especially when prior and(or) concurrent biopsies fail to disclose malignancy.
