Abstract

Coccidioidomycosis is a systemic fungal infection generally considered to be endemic for localized areas of the Western Hemisphere, in the so-called “Lower Sonoran Life Zone” (the semiarid section of southwestern United States and Mexico), and Central and South America (1–9). As recent reports have suggested, however, because of increased exposure to the pathogen, mainly because of expanded travel and tourism to endemic areas, incidence of coccidioidomycosis have been diagnosed in various other parts of the United States and the world (10–19).
