HURTADO, Isabel C.; LOPEZ, Pio; OSORIO, Miguel A.  and  LOPEZ-MEDINA, Eduardo. Congenital cryptococcosis in a newborn exposed to HIV: A case report. Infect. [online]. 2016, vol.20, n.2, pp.93-96. ISSN 0123-9392.

Cryptococcosis may affect children of all ages, specially those who are inmunocompromised. It is usually acquired from the inhalation of environmental spores, although other sources of transmission exist. We describe a case of congenital cryptococcosis transmitted from a mother with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), which was successfully treated with combination antifungal agents.
