Answer

Most commonly, coccidioidomycosis is due to reactivation of previous disease. Primary disease can also occur, however, usually within 6-12 months after transplantation, which is the period of more intense rejection therapy. Treat for 1 year or more, and continue for the duration of immunosuppression.
