An official American Thoracic Society statement: Treatment of fungal infections in adult pulmonary and critical care patients.
TLDR
This document focuses on three primary areas of concern: the endemic mycoses, including histoplasmosis, sporotrichosis, blastomycosis; fungal infections of special concern for immune-compromised and critically ill patients, including cryptococcosis, aspergillosis, candidiasis, and Pneumocystis pneumonia; and rare and emergingfungal infections.
Diagnosis, Treatment, and Prevention of Nontuberculous Mycobacterial Diseases
TLDR
This poster presents a probabilistic procedure called a “shots fired” procedure called “spatially aggregating granuloma” that is able to be injected into the lining of the arteries of the digestive system and excites the immune system.
2016 Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) Clinical Practice Guideline for the Treatment of Coccidioidomycosis.
TLDR
In this practice guideline, recommendations are organized to address actionable questions concerning the entire spectrum of clinical syndromes that can range from initial pulmonary infection, which eventually resolves whether or not antifungal therapy is administered, to a variety of pulmonary and extrapulmonary complications.
Practice Guidelines for the Treatment of Coccidioidomycosis
TLDR
Management of patients diagnosed with coccidioidomycosis involves defining the extent of infection and assessing host factors that predispose to disease severity, which may include antifungal therapy, surgical debridement, or both.
Recent Advances in Our Understanding of the Environmental, Epidemiological, Immunological, and Clinical Dimensions of Coccidioidomycosis
TLDR
This review is a summary of the recent advances that have been made in the understanding of this pathogen, including its mycology, genetics, and niche in the environment.
Coccidioidomycosis as a Common Cause of Community-acquired Pneumonia
TLDR
If CAP develops in persons who travel or reside in Coccidioides-endemic regions, diagnostic evaluation should routinely include laboratory evaluation for this organism.

TLDR
Although the advent of oral azole antifungal drugs has made primary prophylaxis against fungal diseases in HIV-infected patients feasible, many questions remain to be answered before the preventive use of antifundal drugs can be advocated.
