Coccidioidomycosis is one of three dimorphic endemic mycoses recognized in North America. Over the past decade, the disease has been resurgent, particularly in the southwest United States. With this increase in incidence have come new observations and insights and re-examination of past issues. This article explores some of these areas by focusing principally on recent publications that are of importance.
