Cryptococcosis is a potentially fatal fungal disease caused by variants of Cryptococcus neoformans species. The disease is mostly seen in immunodeficiency states particularly among those infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The CNS is the most common site of disseminated cryptococcal infection. We present an interesting case of HIV positive patient presenting as secondary cutaneous cryptococcoma with meningitis which is seen in 10-20% of cases and indicates poor prognosis.
