Abstract

We report a young homosexual male with AIDS that presented a systemic Cryptococcus neoformans infection. He had skin, lymph node and colonic involvement but the central nervous system was spared. Treatment was started with amphotericin B, achieving a good remission of skin lesions. However, malaise and digestive symptoms did not abate and the patient died.
