A rare infection of the respiratory system with erythema nodosum in a young nun
SUMMARY. This is a case report of a young woman, a nun, who presented with fever, arthralgia, intense non-specific symptoms and erythema nodosum. Despite the non-typical radiological features, the careful review of her medical and personal history was decisive for the diagnosis and treatment. The patient suffered from Coccidioidomycosis, which is a rare infection in Greece. The appropriate treatment led to immediate clinical and laboratory improvement. The three-year follow-up did not show no any residual lesions or disorders. Pneumon 2008; 21(4):–
