Abstract

This report describes a patient with cryptococcal meningitis and newly diagnosed sarcoidosis not taking corticosteroids. Sarcoidosis is an independent risk factor for cryptococcal infection; most patients with sarcoidosis who develop cryptococcal infection are not on immunosuppressive drugs. Cryptococcal meningitis in sarcoid patients often presents clinically with non-specific features, and should be excluded in patients with sarcoidosis and neurological disturbances.
