  6. What infection is caused due to inhaling conidia and this produces a primary pulmonary infection that may progress to systemic infection and chronic lung disease

    valley fever
  9. what is the morphology of coccidioidomycosis

  11. how does coccidioidomycosis get to the body
    arthrospores are inhaled from dust, creates spherules and can form nodules in the lungs

    blastomyces dermatitidis
  18. what are restricted to endemic regions of the world
