Radiographically these are usually focal alveolar infiltrates. Infection may be associated with the development of a rash, particularly erythema nodosum and erythema multiforme. Occasionally, there may be symmetric arthralgias or arthritis. Peripheral blood eosinophilia is not uncommon. Acute primary pulmonary coccidioidomycosis, particularly when associated with erythema nodosum and/or erythema multiforme, is frequently called “Valley fever.” When associated with arthralgias or arthritis, it has been termed “desert rheumatism.”

1F25.10 Disseminated coccidioidomycosis

Definition of Disseminated coccidioidomycosis: Diffuse pulmonary coccidioidomycosis occurs either when there is inhalation of a massive number of arthroconia, such as may occur during archeological excavations, or among individuals with severely depressed cellular immunity (e.g., late HIV-1 infection [AIDS]; cancer chemotherapy; allogeneic transplant recipients, treatment with corticosteroids; and during the second, third trimesters and postpartum pregnancy). The radiographic appearance often is a mixture of small nodules and interstitial findings, sometimes called “reticulonodular” or, because of it may resemble overwhelming pulmonary tuberculosis, “miliary.”

1F25.11 Primary cutaneous coccidioidomycosis

Definition of Primary cutaneous coccidioidomycosis: Coccidioidomycosis may rarely result from direct inoculation, usually through a puncture of the skin by a thorn or other vegetative structure. The infection generally remains confined to this area with local lymphangitic spread and is not considered indicative of disseminated disease. Coccidioidal serology tests may be positive.

1F25.12 Coccidioides meningitis

Conidiobolomycosis can, however, cause major facial disfigurement. In individuals with impaired immune responses more invasive and potentially fatal infections may occur: such infections are not usually associated with skin lesions.

Dermatophytosis

Definition of Dermatophytosis: Dermatophytosis (tinea, ringworm) is a superficial infection of the skin, hair or nails by dermatophyte fungi of the genera Trichophyton, Epidermophyton or Microsporum. These fungi normally invade only the outer keratinous layer of the epidermis (stratum corneum), the hair shaft and the nail. They count amongst the commonest infections in man. Some species (e.g. Trichophyton rubrum) are essentially anthropophilic and infect only man whereas others are zoophilic (e.g. Trichophyton verrucosum) but may cause human infection from contact with infected animals.

1F2D.1 Malassezia folliculitis

Definition of Malassezia folliculitis: Malassezia folliculitis is caused by the invasion of the hair follicle by Malassezia yeasts. Although Malassezia yeasts are a part of the normal human microflora, under certain conditions they can cause superficial dermatological conditions.
