Core Tip This case highlights the presence of a concomitant infection of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and coccidioidomycosis. This was further complicated by the formation of a refractory pneumothorax. Fungal infections in SARS-CoV-2 patients appear underdiagnosed and may have an increased prevalence in patients with comorbidities, such as malignancies, diabetes, and chronic lung disorders. Total 39 case reports were included in our literature review. The risk of pneumothorax and pneumomediastinum formation does not necessarily increase from a history of smoking or underlying lung pathology; however, the incidence of a prolonged cough prior to pneumothorax formation seems to be consistent across several reported cases.
