Progressive disseminated histoplasmosis is a rare fungal infection and occurs in immunocompromised and immunosuppressed patients in the endemic area. It is difficult to differentiate it from tuberculosis on the basis of imaging finding alone. Here, we report a biopsy proven case of bilateral adrenal histoplasmosis with involvement of central nervous system (CNS). This patient showed good response to antifungal treatment.
