AbstractA child developed hydrocephalus. Sixteen months later, it was discovered to be a complication of coccidioidal meningitis. The infection's source was uncertain until genomic analysis of the fungal isolate identified its origin to be a visit to Beeville, Texas. Improved national reporting of cases of coccidioidomycosis might reduce diagnostic delays.
