Abstract
Histoplasmosis is a disease caused by a mold that grows in soil and in material found in bat and bird droppings. Workers can become sick from breathing dust containing mold spores when contaminated matter is disturbed. Workers who are most at risk include bridge painters, demolition workers, heavy equipment operators, roofers, and heating and air-conditioning system installers.
