Abstract

Coccidioidomycosis rarely involves the female genital tract. This report describes a case of coccidioidomycosis that was incidentally discovered involving the uterus of an asymptomatic 70 year old woman who had squamous carcinoma of the cervix. Reports of the few previously documented examples of coccidioidomycosis of the female genitalia are reviewed. Although the uterine lesion probably resulted from a solitary focus of dissemination from a clinically inapparent and completely resolved primary pulmonary infection, evidence is presented that it may have been a primary uterine infection.
