Abstract

Typing of cryptococcal varieties and antifungal susceptibility testing were performed on two strains which were isolated from a nonimmunosuppressed host with cryptococcal meningitis and another from a patient with systemic cryptococcosis with underlying liver cirrhosis. Both varieties of clinical isolates were identified by the use of the glycin-cycloheximide-bromothymol blue agar medium as Cryptococcus neoformans variety neoformans. For the two isolates of Cryptococcus neoformans, the minimal inhibitory concentrations (MIC) of amphotericin B were 0.25 g/mL and the MICs of fluconazole were 8 g/mL.
