Core Tip Impaired cell-mediated immunity is known to increase the risk for disseminated histoplasmosis and has been described in the setting of Crohn disease (CD) treated with immunosuppressant agents. Endoscopically, the appearance of histoplasmosis varies and includes features of inflammatory mucosal changes. Increasing awareness of this condition is critical to avoid misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment, particularly in the setting of underlying CD. While no specific recommendations are available, immunosuppressive therapy may be safely initiated in some cases when there appears to be effective response to antifungal therapy and the patient can be monitored closely.
