Reportable Fungal Diseases by State

What to know

Fungal disease reporting varies by state. Coccidioidomycosis (Valley fever) and Candida auris (C. auris) are nationally notifiable diseases; health departments voluntarily submit data to CDC. Some states report on blastomycosis and histoplasmosis. Other types of fungal diseases, like cryptococcosis, and conditions, like fungal meningitis, are reported in select states. Check with your local health department about disease reporting procedures in your state.
