Abstract

Cryptococcus neoformans infection is a known cause of meningoencephalitis in immunocompromised patients. However, it is less frequent in immunocompetent individuals. Here we report a case of a 60 years old COVID-19 patient with a history of several co-morbidities who received tocilizumab and corticosteroids, which lead to Cryptococcemia.
