Evaluation of a commercially available, point-of-care Coccidioides antibody lateral flow assay to aid in rapid diagnosis of coccidioidomycosis in dogs.

Sallianne Schlacks, Polina Vishkautsan, Christine Butkiewicz, Lisa Shubitz,

Coccidioidomycosis in dogs can range from mild respiratory disease or vague, chronic malaise to acute, severe life-threatening illness. The diagnosis of coccidioidomycosis in dogs is based on clinical presentation and serology. Spherule identification is not typical because of low numbers of organisms in specimens, and the invasive nature of sampling ... Read more >>

Antibiotic and antifungal treatment among persons with confirmed coccidioidomycosis - Southern California, 2011.

Gloria C Chi, Kaitlin Benedict, Karlyn D Beer, Brendan R Jackson, Orion McCotter, Fagen Xie, Jean M Lawrence, Sara Y Tartof,

We investigated coccidioidomycosis testing and treatment patterns among persons in an integrated healthcare delivery system to identify gaps in diagnosis and treatment. Coccidioidomycosis diagnosis delays were common. Among persons who tested positive, 70% were prescribed antibiotics before positive coccidioidomycosis tests. Antibiotic treatment decreased and antifungal treatment increased after positive testing. ... Read more >>

Hanna N Oltean, Mark Springer, Jolene R Bowers, Riley Barnes, George Reid, Michael Valentine, David M Engelthaler, Mitsuru Toda, Orion Z McCotter,

The full geographic range of coccidioidomycosis is unknown, although it is most likely expanding with environmental change. We report an apparently autochthonous coccidioidomycosis patient from Spokane, Washington, USA, a location to which Coccidioides spp. are not known to be endemic. ... Read more >>

Coccidioidomycosis Skin Testing in a Commercially Insured Population, United States, 2014-20171.

Kaitlin Benedict, Orion Z McCotter, Brendan R Jackson,

Coccidioidomycosis skin testing appears to be uncommon, based on US health insurance claims data. Patient demographic features were consistent with the approval of the test for adults, but few patients had previous coccidioidomycosis diagnosis codes supporting its use for detecting delayed-type hypersensitivity in those with a history of pulmonary coccidioidomycosis. ...

Initial Presentation of Disseminated Coccidioidomycosis with Ocular Lesions.

Edward J Quinlan, Veenu Gill,

Ocular involvement with disseminated coccidiodal infection is rare. Even rarer is a patient presenting with symptomatic chorioretinitis first, followed weeks later by systemic symptoms of disseminated coccidioidomycosis. This highlights the need for physicians to have a heightened suspicion for testing for valley fever in patients living in endemic regions who ... Read more >>

Advances in Diagnosis of Progressive Pulmonary and Disseminated Coccidioidomycosis.

Christelle Kassis, Michelle Durkin, Eric Holbrook, Robert Myers, Lawrence Wheat,

BACKGROUND:Antibody detection is the main method for diagnosis of coccidioidomycosis but has limitations. The Coccidioides antigen enzyme immunoassay is recommended for testing cerebrospinal fluid in suspected meningitis. Reports on urine and serum antigen detection evaluated small numbers of patients who were mostly immunocompromised. The purpose of this study was to ... Read more >>

Pulmonary Coccidioidomycosis.

Kathryn E Kimes, Sabirah N Kasule, Janis E Blair,

Coccidioidomycosis is an infection caused by the geographically restricted dimorphic fungus, Coccidioides. Coccidioidomycosis occurs endemically in the southwestern and western United States, mainly in focused regions of Arizona and California where the incidence is highest, and in Central and South America. Patients with impaired immunity, especially those with impaired cellular ... Read more >>

Coccidioidomycosis (Valley Fever) in Primary Care.

Kevin R Herrick, Madison E Trondle, Taynet T Febles,

Primary pulmonary coccidioidomycosis (valley fever) is caused by inhaling airborne spores of the fungus Coccidioides immitis or Coccidioides posadasii. Residing in or traveling to areas endemic for Coccidioides is required for the diagnosis; no person-to-person or zoonotic contagion occurs. The incidence of coccidioidomycosis is increasing in endemic areas, and it ... Read more >>

Pulmonary Coccidioidomycosis Mimicking Aspergillosis Fungus Ball.

Sakda Sathirareuangchai, A Christian Whelen,

The genus Coccidioides is composed of C. immitis and C. posadasii. Both can cause coccidioidomycosis and are geographically restricted to certain areas of endemicity. The histopathologic features in pulmonary coccidioidomycosis include necrotizing granulomatous inflammation and the presence of spherules, which is considered to be a key diagnostic finding. Cavitary lung ... Read more >>

Disseminated Coccidioidomycosis to the Gallbladder.

Kulraj Grewal, Tushar Bajaj, Greti Petersen, Augustine Munoz, Arman Froush, Arash Heidari,

Coccidioidomycosis is an infection caused by inhalation of arthroconidia produced by dimorphic fungi in the genus Coccidioides. Forty percent of patients will develop an influenza-like illness with symptoms suggestive of a mild and self-limited respiratory infection; however, 5% of these individuals will develop extrapulmonary disseminated disease. An immunocompromised patient presented ... Read more >>

Re-drawing the Maps for Endemic Mycoses.

Nida Ashraf, Ryan C Kubat, Victoria Poplin, Antoine A Adenis, David W Denning, Laura Wright, Orion McCotter, Ilan S Schwartz, Brendan R Jackson, Tom Chiller, Nathan C Bahr,

Endemic mycoses such as histoplasmosis, coccidioidomycosis, blastomycosis, paracoccidioidomycosis, and talaromycosis are well-known causes of focal and systemic disease within specific geographic areas of known endemicity. However, over the past few decades, there have been increasingly frequent reports of infections due to endemic fungi in areas previously thought to be "non-endemic." ... Read more >>

J Hubber, A Person, L Jecha, D Flodin-Hursh, J Stiffler, H Hill, S Bassham, O Z McCotter, H N Oltean,

Coccidioidomycosis is an emerging infection in Washington State. The epidemiology of the disease in Washington is poorly understood at present; underrecognition and underreporting of coccidioidomycosis is suspected based on reports of only severe disease. We sought to characterize healthcare provider knowledge, attitudes, and practices regarding coccidioidomycosis awareness, diagnosis, and treatment ... Read more >>

Advances in Understanding Human Genetic Variations That Influence Innate Immunity to Fungi.

Richard M Merkhofer, Bruce S Klein,

Fungi are ubiquitous. Yet, despite our frequent exposure to commensal fungi of the normal mammalian microbiota and environmental fungi, serious, systemic fungal infections are rare in the general population. Few, if any, fungi are obligate pathogens that rely on infection of mammalian hosts to complete their lifecycle; however, many fungal ... Read more >>

Christina Jamros, Ryan C Maves, Patricia E Chinn, Kathy Tang, Scott T Johns, Joshua Fierer, Catherine M Berjohn,

AbstractBackgroundThere are limited prospective data available to guide the management of severe coccidioidomycosis. In particular, the treatment of disseminated coccidioidomycosis often requires extended courses of antifungal therapy, for which there are often intolerable side-effects, toxicities, and failures. In recent years, newer oral triazole antifungals with in vitro activity against Coccidioides ... Read more >>
