RESUMO

Efusões pleurais surgem raramente em associação com a histoplasmose capsu-lata, ocorrendo em geral nas formas agudas da doença. Relatamos e discutimos um caso clínico em que um histoplasmoma subpleural acompanhou-se de dor pleurítica, hidrotórax e pleurite fibrosante.

Unitermos: Histoplasmose; Histoplasmose capsulata; Histoplasmoma; Histoplasma capsulatum var. capsulatum; Derrame pleural.
