abstract

  • A 33 year old man with AIDS presented with fever, dyspnoea, cough and a miliary pattern on the chest radiograph. Cryptococcus neoformans infection was diagnosed from bronchoalveolar lavage bronchoscopy. This case supports the principle that, in patients with AIDS, pulmonary infections can exhibit variable radiographic features and that definitive diagnosis should always be considered.
