Abstract

A 28-year-old woman with a history of systemic lupus erythematosus on hydroxychloroquine and steroid therapy presented with fever, dysentery, and thrombocytopenia. Marrow aspirate revealed yeast forms of histoplasmosis. She was treated with liposomal amphotericin B followed by itraconazole with resolution of symptoms and marrow recovery.
