Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Cryptococcosis is a common opportunistic infection in immunosuppressed patients. We present a case of cryptococcal meningitis with bilateral papillitis, multifocal choroiditis, and sensorineural hearing loss. The ocular manifestations present in this patient were unusual. The management of such cases poses a challenge because blindness and deafness can be the morbid sequelae.
