Abstract

Cryptococcus neoformans is an infrequent cause of septic arthritis. Cryptococcal infections have been linked to sarcoidosis because of both inherent immunologic consequences of the disease and its typical immune modulating treatments. Cryptococcal infections should be suspected in patients with underlying immune deficiencies, and a high degree of vigilance should be exercised to avoid misdiagnosis, dissemination of infection, and meningitis.
