Abstract

A case of an isolated subcutaneous coccidioidomycosis in a 61-year-old man is presented. The patient has lived and worked in Arizona for 3 years previously but developed no apparent clinical signs of the disease. The painless, cavitating, tumor-like mass was surgically excised and the diagnosis was established by histological demonstration of the fungi and confirmed by serum counterimmuno-electrophoresis. This represents the first imported case of coccidioidomycosis in Hungary.
