Screening for detection of antibodies to Coccidioides immitis/posadasii
This test may be used as an aid for the diagnosis of central nervous system (CNS) coccoidioidomycosis.
A single negative result by this assay does not exclude diagnosis of CNS coccidioidomycosis. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) fungal cultures and PCR for Coccidioides species are recommended alongside serologic testing.

If result is positive, then Coccidioides by complement fixation and immunodiffusion will be performed at an additional charge.
