Peritoneal involvement is a rare extrapulmonary manifestation of coccidioidomycosis. We report a patient with meningeal coccidioidomycosis who was found to have multiple, globular, peripherally enhancing deposits in the peritoneal cavity at abdominal computed tomography, raising the consideration of peritoneal malignancy. Aspiration biopsy demonstrated peritoneal coccidioidomycosis. The particular computed tomographic findings of peritoneal coccidioidomycosis seen in this patient have not been previously described.
