Since Sayers and Meriwether (1) suggested in 1932 that fungi could be the cause of some pulmonary calcifications, many epidemiologic studies (2, 3), sensitivity tests ( 4), and histologic examinations (5-7) have strengthened this point of view. The frequency with which structures resembling Histoplasma capsulatum or Coccidioides immitis have been found in calcified foci of the lung, using the methenamine-silver stain, in regions where histoplasmosis and coccidioidomycosis are endemic (6, 7… Expand
