  • A reformulated skin test for coccidioidomycosis, Spherusol®, was recently approved for use in the USA. We hypothesized that it could be useful in predicting severity of illness and outcome in various types of coccidioidomycosis. Subjects with non-meningeal coccidioidomycosis attending a clinic in the coccidioidal endemic region were skin tested with Spherusol® and clinical data were collected at the time of testing and at follow-up. Twenty-seven subjects were studied, eight of whom had… CONTINUE READING
