Here we report the differences observed after using relevant demographic variables that align with the epidemiology of serious coccidioidal
Fungal pneumonias; pulmonary coccidioidal
syndromes (Part I).
Treatment of coccidioidal
meningitis with amphotericin B.
The incidence of coccidioidal
infection is highest in late summer and early fall.
Myalgia is more common when coccidioidal
pneumonia is present (69% vs 23%, P=.
Carter infectious granuloma of bones and joints, with Special Reference to Coccidioidal
Acquired immunity occurs with the development of delayed type hypersensitivity to the coccidioidal
antigen, as well as the production of T helper 1-associated cytokines such as interferon-gamma and interleukin-2.
Diagnosis of coccidioidal
meningitis with meningeal biopsy using flexible endoscopy, neuroimaging prognostic and therapeutic used
A case of coccidioidal
fungemia initiaIIy diagnosed as rhinosporidiosis.
This results in chronic symptomatic fungal lung disease (eg, chronic pulmonary histoplasmosis, chronic blastomycosis, persistent coccidioidal
7) After resolution of primary coccidioidal
pneumonia, an asymptomatic nodule or thin-walled cavity is not uncommon and this gradually resolves.
The laboratory criteria for diagnosis are cultural, histopathologic, or molecular evidence of the presence of Coccidioides spp; a positive serologic test for coccidioidal
antibodies in serum or cerebrospinal fluid by 1) detection of coccidioidal
IgM by immunodiffusion, enzyme immunoassay (EIA) latex agglutination, or tube precipitin or 2) detection of rising titer of coccidioidal
IgM by immunodiffusion, EIA, or complement fixation; or a coccidioidal
skin test conversion from negative to positive after the onset of clinical signs and symptoms.
