Coccidioidomycosis Presented as a Pelvic Mass in an Otherwise Healthy Female.

Ann Clin Lab Sci. 2015 Sep;45(5):585-7

Abstract
We present a case of a 32 year old female with a past medical history of hypertension who presented with several years of chronic back pain and was ultimately diagnosed with isolated pelvic coccidioidomycosis. She was initially seen by gynecologic oncology for assessment of possible metastatic cancer by image study, but a cytopathologic diagnosis of coccidioidomycosis lead to a cancellation of the planned surgery and extensive antifungal treatment managed by the infectious disease team. She had no known previous pulmonary disease or immunodeficiency. Pelvic coccidioidomycosis without known pulmonary disease is very rare, and disseminated infection typically only occurs in those who are severely immunocompromised. Our case presented with several years of back pain and a pelvic mass mistaken for possible malignancy by image study.
