Coccidioides immitis is a dimorphic, filamentous fungus belonging to the Phylum Ascomycota, that presents barrelshaped arthroconidia (2‐5 μm) that usually develop in alternate hyphal cells. It is a soil‐inhabiting fungus confined to dessert regions of the Western Hemisphere. Although most infections are asymptomatic, inhalation of the spores may cause pulmonary coccidiomycosis, specially in immunocompromised patients.
