  • Disseminated Coccidioidomycosis

    Those affected with disseminated infection report fever, dyspnea, weight loss, and night sweats. Disseminated coccidioidomycosis can affect any organ.[symptoma.com] Despite 5 weeks of amphotericin B therapy (1 to 5 mg/kg/d), she remained persistently symptomatic with leukocytosis and tracheal aspirates repeatedly grew Coccidioides immitis[aspergillus.org.uk] We report a case of paravertebral and intravertebral abscesses caused by Coccidioides immitis in a Japanese man.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningitis

    Coccidioides immitis is a soil-based, dimorphic fungus that exists in mycelial and yeast (spherule) forms.[emedicine.com] Besides Coccidioides immitis, Coccidioides posadasii has been described as a new species causing coccidioidomycosis ( 98 ).[dx.doi.org] Besides Coccidioides immitis , Coccidioides posadasii has been described as a new species causing coccidioidomycosis ( 98 ).[doi.org]

  • Fungal Meningitis

    A third of patients presenting with disseminated coccidioidomycosis have developed meningitis.[en.wikipedia.org] Abstract Twelve patients with fungal meningitis (ten cases were due to Coccidioides immitis, two were from Cryptococcus neoformans) were treated with brief courses of intravenous[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Types of fungi that may cause meningitis include Cryptococcus neoformans, Histoplasma capsulatum, Coccidioides immitis, Aspergillus species and others.[ic.steadyhealth.com]

  • Pneumonia

    Fungal pneumonias may complicate disseminated infections such as coccidioidomycosis. This organism is generally seen in the southwestern United States.[clinicaladvisor.com] It is most often caused by Histoplasma capsulatum, blastomyces, Cryptococcus neoformans, Pneumocystis jiroveci (pneumocystis pneumonia, or PCP), and Coccidioides immitis.[en.wikipedia.org]
