Abstract

We describe a patient who presented with cryptococcosis and the adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDSA) as the initial manifestation of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. This patient represents the first reported recovery from ARDS secondary to widespread cryptococcosis. He is currently doing well as an outpatient on maintenance therapy with amphotericin B and azidothymidine.
