A case of an Italian AIDS patient who developed both meningitis and cerebral mass lesion as a final relapse of disseminated histoplasmosis is reported. Central nervous system (CNS) involvement occurred while the patient was receiving both amphotericin B and itraconazole as maintenance therapy, thus indicating the difficulty of eradicating histoplasmosis in patients with AIDS.
