Coccidiomycosis of the posterior glottis

Many years ago he was diagnosed with coccidiomycosis in central California and treated. He then came to my office with shortness of breath and noisy breathing. The coccidiomycosis was growing at the back of his larynx and closing off his airway by keeping the vocal cords from coming apart and also from the mass effect of the coccidiomycosis.
