Abstract

Coccidioidomycosis is a common fungal infection in the southwestern United States. Two liver transplant candidates contracted coccidioidomycosis while awaiting transplantation in an endemic area, one of whom had successful transplantation despite unrecognized active mycosis. Symptoms and signs mistakenly attributed to terminal liver disease may actually be caused by coccidioidomycosis.
