Abstract
We experienced two cases of cryptococcosis which were diagnosed by India-ink stain and culture of cerebrospinal fluid and biopsy with culture of skin lesion or lymph nodes. Both cases were confused with tuberculous meningitis or miliary tuberculosis because of irregular densities in hilum and scattered miliary sized nodules in chest X-ray, family history of pulmonary tuberculosis and clinical symptoms. We made a brief review of literature.
Key Words: Cryptococcus neoformans, Cryptococcosis, Meningitis
