Abstract

Two HIV-infected patients had recurrent cryptococcal meningitis (CM) despite treatment with fluconazole and immune reconstitution with combination antiretroviral therapy (CART). Following treatment of CM with fluconazole, lumbar puncture should be performed either after completion of induction treatment for CM or before starting CART, in order to confirm cerebrospinal fluid sterility.
