Pulmonary cryptococcosis: review of eleven cases


Journal of the South Carolina Medical Association 78(8): 419-423
Pulmonary cryptococcosis: review of eleven cases
Eleven cases of pulmonary infection by Cryptococcus neoformans, seen during 1971-81 at 2 community hosp., are reviewed. Predisposing conditions included sarcoidosis, tuberculosis, diabetes and steroid therapy. Dissemination of the disease beyond the lung occurred in 3 patients; 2 of these patients had positive urine cultures. In the third, dissemination was not recognised until the patient developed meningeal symptoms later in his course.
