Abstract

The pathologist continues to have an essential part in the study of coccidioidomycosis, for the clinician and the epidemiologist must press for diagnostic accuracy, and the most accurate diagnosis will often be that of the pathologist who reviews clinical and laboratory data in the light of anatomical findings.
