Coccidioidomycosis is a common, environmentally acquired, pulmonary fungal infection in arid and semi-arid regions of the West, especially Arizona and California. The infection is frequently associated with striking cutaneous manifestations. Reactive, immunologically mediated eruptions include erythema nodosum, a generalized exanthem, Sweet syndrome, and reactive granulomatous dermatitis. Less commonly, the skin can harbor the actual organisms as a result of dissemination from the lungs. Dermatologists may play a key role in the recognition of coccidioidomycosis
