  • Coccidioidomycosis

    On microscopy, they were granulomas, often with caseous necrosis similar to that from miliary tuberculosis, but containing abundant protozoa-like organisms.[] Meningitis is the most serious and lethal complication of disseminated disease.[] […] from tuberculous meningitis and cryptococcal meningitis, especially if cryptococcal antigen is negative.[]
