    • Description:
      Thirteen-hundred-eight cases of six systemic mycoses were reported optionally to the Public Health Service by 29 states in 1970 (Table 1).

      Histoplasmosis was reported by the greatest number of states, IS, and most of the 21 5 cases reported were concentrated in the Mississippi-Ohio River valleys.

      Coccidioidomycosis accounted for the greatest number of cases, and California and Arizona reported 998 of the 1017 cases (98%) in 12 states.

      Following coccidioidomycosis and histoplasmosis in frequency were blastomycosis (41 cases in 11 states), cryptococcosis (23 cases in 9 states), actinomycosis (7 cases in 6 states), and nocardiosis (4 cases in 3 states).

      Cryptococcosis was the most common mycotic cause of death in 1968 (Table 2), the latest year for which figures are available. National death certificate information attributes 96 deaths to cryptococcosis, 58 each to coccidioidomycosis and histoplasmosis, and 16 to actinomycosis. None was reported for blastomycosis.
