Pyo-Mediastinitis: A Complication of Pulmonary Coccidioidomycosis
A rare fatal case of pulmonary coccidioidomycosis complicated by mediastinal and visceral abscesses treated with antifungal medications is described. The case report discusses the potential need for early surgical intervention to drain mediastinal and visceral abscesses as a primary mode of therapy in disseminated coccidioidomycosis for a successful control of infection and clinical outcome.
