When to Seek Medical Care
When symptoms occur (listed above) and have no clear source (for example, cold, viral syndrome, bacterial infection), a medical caregiver should be consulted, especially if the individual lives in or has visited areas where animals and humans have been diagnosed with cryptococcosis. People who are immunocompromised (for example, those with HIV, cancer patients, chemotherapy patients) are at higher risk for complications (meningitis, coma, death) from cryptococcosis so they should seek care immediately if symptoms develop.
