Effect Of Geography On The Analysis Of Coccidioidomycosis-Associated Deaths, United States
Southwestern United States
Pubmed Central ID:PMC5038404
Description:Because coccidioidomycosis death rates vary by region, we reanalyzed coccidioidomycosis-associated mortality in the United States by race/ethnicity, then limited analysis to Arizona and California. Coccidioidomycosis-associated deaths were shown to increase among African-Americans but decrease among Native Americans and Hispanics. Separately, in a Native American cohort, diabetes co-varied with coccidioidomycosis-associated death.
