- , , We herein report an elderly patient with cryptococcosis in the nervous
system who presented with cerebellar dysfunction and showed cerebellar parenchymal
lesion with adjacent focal meningeal enhancement on the brain CT and the
serial brain MRls. The cerebellar lesion suggests cryptococcal inflammatory reaction
or a cerebellar infarction from the arteritis of a branch of the left superior cerebellar
artery. This clinical and neuroimaging finding of cerebellitis has not been reported in
cryptococcosis. We think cryptococcosis would be included in the differential
diagnosis of cerebellitis.
