Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as coccidioidomycosis (valley fever) — that affect you. Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.
Coccidioidomycosis (Valley Fever). Have you ever been diagnosed with this condition? It is a serious fungal disease of the lungs and other tissues.
Possible responses:→ No / don't know
→ I tested negative
→ In the past only
→ Current problem, only lungs involved
→ Current problem, disseminated
Since cellular immunity is responsible for protection against the spreading of coccidioidomycosis, cellular immunity may be depressed in those who experience dissemination. HIV, for example, greatly increases the risk of developing coccidioidomycosis.
