18 Possible Causes for Cerebrospinal Fluid Glucose Decreased, Coccidioides Immitis

  • Meningitis

    Coccidioides immitis is a soil-based, dimorphic fungus that exists in mycelial and yeast (spherule) forms.[emedicine.com] , protein, and lactate in the cerebrospinal fluid and a decrease in the glucose concentration.[nejm.org] immitis Blastomyces dermatitidis Histoplasma capsulatum Candida spp Aspergillus spp Viruses Enterovirus Poliovirus Echovirus Coxsackievirus A Coxsackievirus B Enterovirus[emedicine.com]
