A 10-year-old patient with known coccidioidomycosis relapsed and had dysrrhythmias and a right atrial mass. Histopathology and culture after surgical removal revealed that this was a vegetative mass infected with Coccidioides spp. We believe that this is the first case of coccidioidal endocarditis to be reported.
