Core Tip Cryptococcosis is a systemic fungal infection, with presentation ranging from asymptomatic pulmonary involvement to meningitis and disseminated disease. Generally, cryptococcosis is considered an opportunistic infection in immunocompromised individuals, affecting persons with human immunodeficiency virus infection in particular. Mass-like and disseminated cryptococcosis lesions are rare in patients with normal immunity, and a negative result on the cryptococcal latex agglutination test may be related to low-grade virulence of the fungus. We describe here a case of pulmonary cryptococcosis which was likely infection with a low-virulence strain, presenting bilaterally distributed lesions on imaging and mimicking hematogenous metastasis.
