Cryptococcosis is a fungal disease with worldwide distribution and wide array of clinical manifestations, caused by encapsulated basidiomycetous yeasts called Cryptococcus spp. It has traditionally been considered an opportunistic infection known to occur in immunocompromised hosts, particularly those who are infected with human immunodeficiency virus. However, this infection has also been reported in phenotypically 'normal' or otherwise clinically non-immunocompromised patients. The seemingly mysterious nature of this potentially fatal illness has always kept clinicians and diagnosticians in a dilemma. This case series reiterates this perspective.
