Abstract: Coccidioidomycosis is an endemic fungal disease that can cause a primary pulmonary, progressive pulmonary, or disseminated disease that can be severe in patients on tumor necrosis factor α inhibitors for the treatment of a variety of autoimmune and granulomatous disorders. Here, we report a complicated case of disseminated coccidioidomycosis with rare ocular involvement after a possible immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome in a 51-year-old man on infliximab for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.
