Core Tip Corticosteroids and anti-tumor necrosis factor α mAbs are commonly used to treat Crohn's disease (CD). However, they may also contribute to an increased risk of opportunistic infections. In this article, we report three cases of pulmonary cryptococcosis in patients with CD after receiving immunomodulatory treatment. Pathogen identification mainly depends on pathological examination findings, but metagenomics can serve as an alternative tool. Patients with timely diagnosis generally have a good prognosis, but clinical alerts should be raised in those who are elderly and have comorbidities and dissemination phenotype.
