Abstract

Three previously normal patients with cryptococcal meningitis had intracranial lesions on computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging that persisted for >5 years after successful cure with antifungal drugs. Persistence of lesions on neuroimaging should not be misinterpreted as evidence of active cryptococcosis.
