About this section


MedlinePlus:33 Valley fever is a disease caused by a fungus (or mold) called coccidioides. the fungi live in the soil of dry areas like the southwestern u.s. you get it from inhaling the spores of the fungus. the infection cannot spread from person to person. anyone can get valley fever. but it's most common among older adults, especially those 60 and older. people who have recently moved to an area where it occurs are at highest risk for infection. other people at higher risk include workers in jobs that expose them to soil dust. these include construction workers, agricultural workers, and military forces doing field training. african americans and asians women in their third trimester of pregnancy people with weak immune systems valley fever is often mild, with no symptoms. if you have symptoms, they may include a flu-like illness, with fever, cough, headache, rash, and muscle aches. most people get better within several weeks or months. a small number of people may develop a chronic lung or widespread infection. valley fever is diagnosed by testing your blood, other body fluids, or tissues. many people with the acute infection get better without treatment. in some cases, doctors may prescribe antifungal drugs for acute infections. severe infections require antifungal drugs. centers for disease control and prevention

MalaCards based summary: Coccidioidomycosis, also known as valley fever, is related to meningitis and candidiasis, and has symptoms including conjunctivitis, arthritis and chest pain. An important gene associated with Coccidioidomycosis is IFNGR1 (interferon gamma receptor 1), and among its related pathways are Staphylococcus aureus infection and Cellular Transformation by HTLV1. The drugs fluconazole and ketoconazole and the compounds 1-methyltryptophan and zymosan have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include lung, testes and skin, and related mouse phenotypes are renal/urinary system and respiratory system.

Disease Ontology:9 A primary systemic mycosis that results in systemic fungal infection, has material basis in coccidioides immitis, transmitted by airborne spores and has symptom conjunctivitis, has symptom arthritis, has symptom chest pain and results in formation of skin nodules.

CDC:4 Valley fever, also called coccidioidomycosis, is an infection caused by the fungus Coccidioides. The fungus is known to live in the soil in the southwestern United States and parts of Mexico and Central and South America. The fungus was also recently found in south-central Washington. People can get valley fever by breathing in the microscopic fungal spores from the air, although most people who breathe in the spores don’t get sick. Usually, people who get sick with valley fever will get better on their own within weeks to months, but some people will need antifungal medication. Certain groups of people are at higher risk for becoming severely ill. It’s difficult to prevent exposure to Coccidioides in areas where it’s common in the environment, but people who are at higher risk for severe valley fever should try to avoid breathing in large amounts of dust if they’re in these areas.
