We described a case of an apparently immunocompetent 66-years old man admitted to hospital with a one-month history of cough, fever and vertigo. During hospitalization, thorax imaging was suggestive of lung metastasis, therefore, he went through several investigations. During hospitalization, he developed neurological symptoms and subsequently underwent a lumbar puncture. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) culture was positive for Cryptococcus spp. isolated on Sabouraud's dextrose agar and bird seed agar. In addition, the direct microscopy examination was positive for the India ink test, as well as with the latex agglutination test...

To describe the characteristics of concomitant lung cancer and pulmonary cryptococcosis (PC) cases. A total of 8 patients with lung cancer and coexisting PC, who were admitted to Fuzhou Pulmonary Hospital of Fujian from 1st January 2009 to 31st December 2015 and whose diagnoses were confirmed by pathological examinations, were studied. One patient had a history of diabetes mellitus and 1 had a history of treated with surgery. The lesions in 7 cases manifested as nodular shadows; only 1 case showed the lesion of the 2 diseases mergedmixed together, and it manifested as a large flake-like infiltrated shadow in the same lob...

Conclusions: To our knowledge, this is the largest case series of patients with PAP ever conducted in Brazil. The survival rate was similar to that found at other center s. For symptomatic, hypoxemic patients, the treatment of choice is still WLL. Precautions should be taken in order to avoid complications, especially opportunistic infections.RESUMO Objetivo: A proteinose alveolar pulmonar (PAP) é uma doença rara, caracterizada pelo acúmulo alveolar de substância surfactante, composta por proteínas e lipídios. É causada por um déficit de atividade macrofágica, c...
