Abstract

Coccidioidal meningitis remains a difficult clinical problem, and despite life-long therapy with triazole antifungals, relapses of disease and medication intolerance occur necessitating salvage treatment. We report two patients with recurrent coccidioidal meningitis who improved following a 2-week course of liposomal amphotericin B monotherapy and discuss potential advantages of this treatment option.
