Part Description

LP21116-6   Coccidioides sp
Coccidioidomycosis, also known as Valley Fever, is caused by two species of soil-dwelling fungi, Coccidioides immitis and C. posadasii. It is common in the southwestern United States, Mexico, and South America and is transmitted by inhalation, frequently after contaminated soil is disrupted, such as by construction or natural events such as earthquakes or dust storms. Infections range from asymptomatic to life-threatening, and the clinical presentation is the same for both species. In about 40% of patients, symptoms begin one to three weeks after exposure and include cough, shortness of breath, headache, fatigue, and rash. Up to 10% of patients develop pulmonary complications or chronic disease, and about one percent of patients develop disseminated infection involving meninges (i.e., meningitis), soft tissues, and bones or joints. Patients who are immunocompromised are more likely to develop more severe disease. [CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/fungal/diseases/coccidioidomycosis/health-professionals.html] Source: Regenstrief LOINC

Change Reason
The PrThr property is used for LOINC terms whose results are reported using an ordered categorical scale, regardless of whether or not an internal threshold was used to make that determination. This change was approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016.; The EIA method, which was always intended to cover more than just enzyme-linked immunoassay and whose display name for the long common name has always been Immunoassay, was renamed IA in order to eliminate ambiguity about whether the method has a broader meaning than just enzyme-linked immunoassay. Likewise, EIA.rapid was renamed IA.rapid. These changes were approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016.
Order vs. Observation
