• We encountered two cases of disseminated histoplasmosis with cutaneous involvement. The clinical and histopathologic findings were those of panniculitis. Primary pulmonary histoplasmosis typically induces a hypersensitivity panniculitis remote from the site of infection. In our cases of disseminated disease, however, the organisms were present in the skin and subcutaneous fat.
