Answer

The distribution of C immitis is limited to the endemic regions of the Western Hemisphere, within the north and south 40° latitudes (ie, parts of the southwestern United States, Mexico, and Central and South America). Persons who have migrated from or traveled to endemic areas may experience onset of disease in other parts of the world.
