Coccidioidomycosis "Valley Fever"

  • Health

Coccidioidomycosis, also called “Valley Fever”, is an infection caused by the fungus Coccidioides. The disease is also sometimes called “San Joaquin Valley fever” or “desert rheumatism.” The term “Valley Fever” usually refers to Coccidioides infection in the lungs, but the infection can spread to other parts of the body in severe cases (this is called “disseminated coccidioidomycosis”).
