Resumen

La meningitis criptocócica se trata de una grave infección del sistema nervioso central causada principalmente por las especias de Cryptococcus neoformans y Cryptococcus gatti que ocurre principalmente en pacientes inmunosuprimidos, en especial en pacientes portadores de VIH. Causante de muchas de las muertes relacionadas al SIDA a nivel mundial. El diagnóstico se realiza mediante el aislamiento del hongo en cultivo en líquido cefalorraquídeo o identificación del antígeno criptocócica en análisis de sangre. Es necesario una detección e intervención terapéutica temprana, para mejorar de forma significativa la supervivencia y calidad de vida de los pacientes.
