  • Chronic Pulmonary Coccidioidomycosis

    Last updated April 3, 2018 occidioidomycosis is an infectious disease caused by inhaling the spores of two related fungi, namely Coccidioides immitis and Coccidioides posadasii[dovemed.com] […] by inhalation of Coccidioides immitis. [1] : 314 Once pulmonary symptoms subside, about 30% of women and 15% of men will have allergic skin manifestations in the form of erythema[en.wikipedia.org] In many patients, there are often associated constitutional symptoms and cutaneous manifestations such as erythema nodosum.[radiopaedia.org]

  • Disseminated Coccidioidomycosis
