Coccidioidomycosis

Coccidioidomycosis is, in fact, a very serious disease, which can be fatal! which can cause a lot of stigma, a lot of emotional pain is physical. I know the images are hard to see, heavy.

Coccidioidomycosis or Vale Fever

Coccidioidomycosis
Yes, an image speaks for me words, and for truth, I often find myself in need of being "tri-eloquent" and assertively loquacious. Well, there's actually a bunch of pancakes spreading out there that fungi and mycoses are signs of HIV infection! And in the meantime, that's not quite the case. The reality, observed closely, is that THE FUNGI AND THE MICOSES which lead to the superficial indication of this possibility. when it comes to these and od of Aspergillosis!

However, in some cases I feel that the sight of a difficult image is better than not seeing it and giving the body the possibility to mirror it, so to speak

So much so that, because of a single interference, aborted at birth, there was even a "to glimpse"Between me and a person I considered a friend! To which I am still very grateful! But….

But when people begin to remove messages before I can read, something is wrong and thus I turned away!

And so, that is why this page there are sad and heavy images.

This was one of the initial causes of the "fight" that brought our friendship to an end!

Too bad, but my editorial policy is something that I can only define! (I.e.

A conversation can lead to a good result.

But a reproach, a tougher challenge. Well, well and well, there's rarely a second chance!

What is Coccidioidomycosis (Valley fever)?

Vale fever, also known as coccidioidomycosis, is a disseminated pulmonary disease.

On the other hand, it can also spread hematologically.

And after all, dear and dear reader, coccioidomycosis is, yes, caused by fungi!

But they are the Coccidioides immitis e Coccidioides posadasii.

And yes, it usually occurs as an acute, asymptomatic, self-limiting, and benign respiratory infection. The organism occasionally spreads to cause injuries in other tissues.

The symptoms, if present, are those of viral and fungal infections

  • Or southwestern US
  • Northern Mexico

And, to warn you, I cite the most affected areas, which are:

  1. Arizona;
  2. The central valley of California;
  3. Parts of New Mexico;
  4. Texas west of El Paso;
  5. Northern Mexico;
  6. Parts of Central America;
  7. Argentina;
  8. Tusually occurs in Utah;
  9. Nevada
  10. South-Central Washington.

About 30 to 60% of people living in an endemic region are exposed to the fungus at some point in their lives. In the US, 11.027 cases of coccidioidomycosis have been reported in 2015.

Coccidioidomycosis is a fungal infection also commonly called "Valley Fever." It can occur in people with healthy or suppressed immune systems and, therefore, is not a disease that defines AIDS.

People who have received transplants and use of immunosuppressants are dangerously prone to Coccidioidomycosis!

Without, however, being carriers of HIV or people living with AIDS!

AIDS Is A Facilitator For This Disease

And it is very important to know that these etiological agents that cause cocciodomycosis can affect people with healthy immune system!

Note that it, Coccidioidomycosis, can cause mild or moderate lung problems.

In people with suppressed immune systems, it can cause serious lung problems and can also spread to other organs.

This includes bones, joints, lymph nodes, kidneys or skin. It can also cause central nervous system disease that can be life-threatening.

And that is why it must be diagnosed and treated quickly. Do you understand the photos better?

Think about the research I do, the translation and review efforts, and consider making a donation by one of these means:

People can be infected with Coccidioidomycosis immitis and Coccidioidomycosis posadasii by breathing on contaminated soil or sucking dust with fungi.

The risk

The suctioning of these fungi is during dust storms or natural disasters, most notably in the southwestern United States.

HIV-positive people with a CD4 cell count below 250 (AIDS) are at highest risk of developing mild or severe coccidioidomycosis after aspirating fungi.

Pregnant women and black and Filipino men are also at increased risk of developing active diseases after being exposed to C. immitis e C. posadasii.
