What are the symptoms of histoplasmosis?
Most infected persons have no apparent illness. If symptoms occur, they will start within 3 to 17 days after exposure. Persons developing disease usually present with an influenza-like illness with fever, cough, headaches, and muscle aches. Acute pneumonia, chronic pneumonia, or a disseminated form that affects other organs can occur. Histoplasmosis can be a fatal illness if persons exhibiting disease symptoms are not treated.
