We describe a possible imported case of osteo-articular coccidioidomycosis in India. Culture of the computed tomography-guided aspirate revealed the growth of Coccidioides spp., which was identified as Coccidioides posadasii by sequencing of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region of rDNA. He was successfully treated with amphotericin B followed by itraconazole. All the previous published reports of coccidioidomycosis cases diagnosed in India are also reviewed in order to increase the awareness of this disease in non-endemic areas.
