The disease histoplasmosis, which was first described by Darling in 1906 and 1908,1 has since been observed and reported many times. An able review by Meleney2 appeared in 1940. Since this review and summary of 32 cases, 5 additional ones, 3 of infants3 and 2 of adults,4 have been reported, making the total number of cases 37. In 7 of these5 the patients have been infants less than 15 months of age. Dodd and Tompkins5a were able to make the diagnosis of the disease in an infant before death. The other patients with diagnoses made during life6 were adults.

The patient here described is the eighth infant to be reported on and the second one in whose case a diagnosis of histoplasmosis was made before death.
