The proceedings of the sixth conference on Coccidioidomycosis presents state of the art overviews of our current understandings of this fungal disease and the causative organism. This is an emerging infectious disease, with cases increasing especially in the Southwest US. The volume should be of interest to medical mycologists, infectious disease especialists, fungal biologists, and immunologists.
