Test ID: COXIS    
Coccidioides Antibody with Reflex, Serum

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Screening for detection of antibodies to Coccidioides immitis/posadasii

Highlights

This test may be used as an aid for the diagnosis of central nervous system (CNS) coccoidioidomycosis.

 

A single negative result by this assay does not exclude diagnosis of CNS coccidioidomycosis. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) fungal cultures and PCR for Coccidioides species are recommended alongside serologic testing.

Reflex Tests Lists tests that may or may not be performed, at an additional charge, depending on the result and interpretation of the initial tests.
