PMID:  16382459     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Coccidioidomycosis is an endemic fungal infection in the southwestern United States. It causes morbidity and mortality among solid organ transplant recipients who reside in or visit the endemic area or who receive organs from donors infected with the fungus. This paper reviews current literature addressing these infections in liver transplantation programs, including risk factors, clinical manifestations in persons with cirrhosis or who have had a liver transplantation, prophylaxis, treatment, and outcomes.
