Abstract: Histoplasmosis is a deep mycosis caused by Histoplasma capsulatum, which has been found in soil with accumulated excreta of bats and birds. This disease has variable clinical findings with only pulmonary or systemic involvement. Upper aerodigestive lesions are found mainly associated with systemic disease, affecting particularly patients with immunosuppression conditions mainly caused by HIV. However, it is uncommon in immunocompetent patients. This report describes a case of oro-laryngeal-esophageal histoplasmosis in a HIV-seronegative patient without detectable systemic involvement.
