We experienced a case of cryptococcosis in a 13-year-old female who had been admitted to our hospital because of intermittent high fever and generalized lymphadenopathy accompanied by multiple nodular eruptions with erosions on the face, scalp, neck and back. The patient was treated under the impression of tuberculous lymphadenitis without any improvement. A surgical biopsy of the lymph node and the subcutaneous nodule, which was performed 14 days later, revealed chronic granulomatous tissue and Langhan's type giant cells which contained numerous cryptococci. A brief review of the literature was done.
Key Words: Cryptococcosis, Subcutaneous Nodular Eruption, Generalized Lymphadenopathy, Amphotericin B, 5-fluorocytosine
