Mesenchymoma and Visceral Cryptococcosis: Report of a Case

Robert H. Wilkins, John E. Bennett, Paul T. Wertlake, John T. West

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A patient is presented who had two unusual diseases-malignant mesenchymoma and disseminated cryptococcosis-each of which is usually fatal. Profound systemic abnormalities were present that disappeared after surgical removal of the mesenchymoma. Since then, with no specific treatment for cryptococcosis, the patient has remained free of symptoms for more than two years. A brief summary is also presented of seventeen patients previously reported in the medical literature in whom "spontaneous" recovery from cryptococcosis had occurred.
