Follow-up is very important for all patients diagnosed with cryptococcosis. Patients who do not follow up with their medical-care providers leave themselves open to reactivation of the fungal infection, and in some cases, progression to dire outcomes. Follow-up allows the caregivers to adjust medications to fit the ongoing condition of the individual and discover if treatments are effective and if the disease is progressing or, at some point, eliminated. This information allows caregivers to modify treatment protocols to best serve the patient.
