Fungi cause a number of human respiratory diseases.

Fungi cause a number of human respiratory diseases. Coccidioidomycosis is caused by the yeast Coccidioides immitis. Although typically contracted by the inhalation of dust containing yeast spores, the fungus may also be introduced through the skin from infected soil. Initial symptoms may resemble the flu, with fever, cough, and possibly a skin rash, and the infection usually runs its course without specific treatment. In rare cases, the fungus penetrates internal tissues, such as the bones, joints, and brain, producing tumors that later form abscesses or ulcers. No treatment is available that can halt the course of this form of the disease.
