Coccidioides species (Coccidioides immitis and Coccidioides posadasii) are dimorphic fungi endemic to the Southwestern United States. Initial infection ranges from asymptomatic to mild upper respiratory tract symptoms and may disseminate to other organs including the genitourinary tract. Genitourinary complaints may be the initial presenting signs and symptoms among a minority of patients. We report a case of genitourinary coccidioidomycosis and discussion of genitourinary disease with coccidioidomycosis.
