Abstract: Atypical presentations of cryptococcal infection have been described as clinical manifestations of immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS) in HIV-infected patients following commence of antiretroviral therapy (ART). The authors describe a patient presenting with cryptococcal meningoradiculitis two weeks after initiation of ART. In patients with advanced HIV disease, immune reconstitution induced by ART can precipitate onset of atypical clinical manifestations in those patients with latent cryptococcal infection of the central nervous system.
