Disseminated cryptococcal disease is typically seen in patients with HIV infection. We report here the evolution of a patient with disseminated cryptococcosis whose treatment failed after ten weeks of induction therapy with amphotericin B. This case illustrates the importance of careful initial evaluation, and close clinical follow-up of these patients who are at risk of developing other opportunistic infections and drug-related complications.
