Abstract

Cryptococcosis is a disseminated infection caused by Cryptococcus neoformans. It usually causes pulmonary infection and meningitis in immunocompromised patients. However, osteomyelitis due to C. neoformans is extremely rare. It is generally known that cryptococcal osteomyelitis is a complication of disseminated cryptococcosis, appearing in 5-10%. We experienced a case of cryptococcal osteomyelitis with paraspinal abscess in a liver transplant patient.
