Infection with Histoplasma capsulatum may result in clinical signs and symptoms consistent with malignancy or infection. Microbiologic and immunologic diagnostic tests for histoplasmosis may yield false-negative results and lead to additional testing for the malignancies it may mimic. We report a patient with negative initial study results for infection who was found on evaluation to have bilateral adrenomegaly and adrenal uptake on 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography suggestive of a neoplastic process. On further testing, the patient was found to have adrenal histoplasmosis.
