Title: Cryptococcal Disease

 

Publication Title: Practice Guidelines for the Management of Cryptococcal Disease

 

Description:

Cryptococcosis is a global invasive mycosis associated with significant morbidity and mortality. These guidelines for its management have been built on the previous Infectious Diseases Society of America guidelines from 2000 and include new sections. There is a discussion of the management of cryptococcal meningoencephalitis in 3 risk groups: (1) human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)–infected individuals, (2) organ transplant recipients, and (3) non–HIV‐infected and nontransplant hosts. There are specific recommendations for other unique risk populations, such as children, pregnant women, persons in resource‐limited environments, and those with Cryptococcus gattii infection.
