Abstract

Coccidioidomycosis is caused by the dimorphic fungus Coccidioides immitis, which is endemic in southwestern United States. We report a case of coccidioidomycosis of cervical lymph nodes that occurred early after the introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy during the phase of immune system recovery, demonstrating a rare disease in a nonendemic area.
