    Valley Fever Center


    Valley fever specialists at St. Joseph's work with each patient to provide compassionate care from diagnosis to treatment.


    Valley fever (coccidioidomycosis) is an infectious disease caused by a fungus that grows in the soils of some parts of the world. It is abundant in the Sonoran desert surrounding Phoenix, Casa Grande, Tucson and other parts of Arizona.

    Symptoms Of Valley Fever

    Symptoms of valley fever include:

    • Pneumonia
    • Cough
    • Chest pain
    • Difficulty breathing
    • Fever
    • Night sweats
    • Weight loss

    These symptoms can also be caused by bacteria or viruses and, thus, distinguishing valley fever can be difficult.

    Comprehensive Valley Fever Diagnosis & Treatment

    If you have symptoms of valley fever, you can receive a thorough examination and treatment plan from valley fever specialists at St. Joseph’s and affiliated offices throughout Arizona. The first step in effectively treating and managing valley fever is a thorough assessment of the extent and severity of the disease in each patient.

    For those whose own immune system is actively engaged in fighting the disease, the best treatment approach is typically rehabilitation to optimize recovery.

    For individuals with progressive or widespread infections, effective management may require a team of specialists to define the location of the infection and determine what combination of antifungal drugs or surgical procedures would be most effective in controlling the disease.

    A valley fever specialist will oversee your assessment of the infection and will work with you to create a management plan based on your specific needs.   

    Our Valley Fever Center offers the resources and expertise needed to carry out comprehensive treatment plans, ensuring the best possible outcome.
