INTRODUCTION: Cyrpotococcosis is mostly seen in patients with acquired immunodeficiency or those with underlying T cell mediated deficiency. However, case reports have shown that the 10-40% of cases are seen in immunocompetent patients. Nonetheless, severe disseminated Cryptococcosis remains a rare entity in those without any underlying immune dysfunction. We present a case of a previously healthy man who presented with disseminated Cryptococcosis.
