Abstract

This report describes a case of cryptococcal meningitis as the initial manifestation of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). During the admission, computed tomography (CT) of brain revealed multiple lesions with ring-enhancement over the cerebellum, frontal and temporal lobes. Autopsy findings showed diffuse cryptococcal meningoencephalitis and central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma forming multiple round ring abscesses. The case demonstrated that opportunistic cryptococcal infection and primary CNS lymphoma may coexist in a patient with AIDS.
