Cryptococcus neoformans is a rare cause of peritonitis; only four cases have been reported in the literature. A 63-year-old man in whom isolation of C. neoformans from ascitic fluid provided the initial clue to disseminated cryptococcosis is described. Review of this case and those previously reported reveals striking association between cryptococcal peritonitis and hepatic disease.
