Zaidi M, Qureshi S, Shakoor S, Fatima S, Mir F - Case Rep Pediatr (2015)

Bottom Line: Investigations revealed lymphadenopathy at lung hila, mesentery, and porta hepatis.The child had received at least two months of empiric antituberculous therapy (ATT) before she came to us.PAS stain showed yeasts which stained blue with Alcian blue, suggesting C. neoformans.

ABSTRACT
We describe our experience with an apparently immunocompetent child presenting with pyrexia of unknown origin without focal signs. Investigations revealed lymphadenopathy at lung hila, mesentery, and porta hepatis. The child had received at least two months of empiric antituberculous therapy (ATT) before she came to us. A CT-guided biopsy revealed granulomatous inflammation. PAS stain showed yeasts which stained blue with Alcian blue, suggesting C. neoformans.

Mentions: Histopathology sections revealed extensive necrosis with aggregates of epithelioid histiocytes forming granulomas in the core tissue (see arrow in Figure 1). Few Langhans-type giant cells were also seen. Periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) stain showed yeasts (see Figure 2) and capsules stained blue with Alcian blue (arrow Figure 3) suggesting C. neoformans.
