Physicians must be aware of the clinical syndromes and take advantage of epidemiologic clues when diagnosing histoplasmosis pericarditis. Clinicians must also be familiar with the uses and limitations of a battery of serologic and mycologic tests. Finally, further clinical trials are needed to study the role of antifungal therapy in the treatment of histoplasmosis pericarditis. © 2006 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
