|Abstract:||A case of histoplasmosis presenting as ulcerated, hyperplastic gingiva and with no other systematic signs and symptoms is reported. The clinical presentation and the rarity of this condition led one of us to the differential diagnosis of a malignant lesion. The correct diagnosis was made after histological examination and tissue culture which yielded Histoplasma capsulatum. The patient was successfully treated with ketoconazole.|
