Abstract

In order to determine whether HIV-associated disseminated histoplasmosis was a recent infection or a reactivation, time series of first episodes of disseminated histoplasmosis were analyzed. Climatic variables were associated with histoplasmosis incidence. This suggested an important proportion of cases were due to recent exposure, and therefore primary prophylaxis may be warranted in French Guiana.
