Primary cutaneous coccidioidomycosis: It is a rare entity, first described in 1926, and since then, only about 20 cases have been reported.
The differentiation between a primary cutaneous coccidioidomycosis and a disseminated one without obvious pulmonary symptoms might be difficult, given the fact that their histology is the same and disseminated coccidioidomycosis may present a phenomenon called locus minoris resistentiae, where the organisms of the bloodstream have a predilection for lodging in areas with previous trauma (lacerations or punctures).
Disseminated cutaneous coccidioidomycosis: The dissemination to the skin compromises virtually any part of the body, but especially the face, neck, armpits, and groin (3,4).
