Meningitis causes inflammation of the meninges which is the protective membranes surrounding the in the brain and spinal cord. The inflammation is caused by an infection in the fluid surrounding the brain or spinal. Coccidioidomycosis is a fungal disease that is prevalent in desert regions of the Americas. The fungus starts in the dry ground, develops into mold, and then becomes airborne. When the mold is inhaled it causes Coccidioidomycosis which can lead to Coccidioidal Meningitis. Fluconazole is the drug used to help cure Coccidioidal Meningitis because of its effective penetration into the cerebrospinal fluid which surrounds the brain and spinal cord. Coccidioidal Meningitis is very important to recognize early because it is the most deadly progression of coccidioidomycosis.
