Most yeasts that proliferate by budding or division have a tubular form.

Histoplasma capsulatum

The fungal pathogen Histoplasma capsulatum belongs to the family of Onygenaceae and is thermally dimorphic, i.e. depending on the ambient temperature it grows in mould form (approx. 25 °C) and becomes a budding yeast at 37 °C (infectious form).

The fungus may cause histoplasmosis, a systemic mycosis (fungal infection).


Transmission mainly occurs via droplets or particles in the air.
