I have read the case report on "Disseminated Histoplasmosis" published by Joshi et al. [1] This is to draw your attention to the article "Disseminated Histoplasmosis" published from our institution by Subramanian et al. [2] The article refers to diabetes mellitus and HIV being the most common co-morbid conditions. This is the single largest series on disseminated histoplasmosis from India including culture-proven disseminated histoplasmosis.

The figures published have been transposed and do not correspond to the text. The yeast cell in the picture is not clear to the uninitiated eye and the arrow pointing to this would greatly improve the quality of this publication. The "numerous" microconidia mentioned in the text is not evident in the figure that has been published.
