Abstract

The imaging findings of cryptococcosis affecting the brain in immunocompetent patients can be different from the more commonly described findings in immuno-compromised patients. We report a case of an extremely unusual MR appearance of central nervous system cryptococcosis in a 49-year-old immunocompetent man.
