Resumen

BAVA, Amadeo Javier et al. Diagnosis of cryptococcosis in cutaneous lesions. Acta bioquím. clín. latinoam. [online]. 2010, vol.44, n.1, pp. 33-36. ISSN 0325-2957.

Diagnosis of cryptococcosis was performed in a patient with multiple cutaneous Muluscum contagiosumlike lesions in the face, clinically suspected as produced by Histoplasma capsulatum. The patient, after being diagnosed HIV positive, also showed Cryptococcus neoformans in the CSF, and was treated with intravenous amphotericin B. Clinical samples from the skin lesions were obtained and smears stained by Giemsa, Grocott and Mayer's mucicarmin were performed. Part of these samples, obtained by scrapping the ulcers, were suspended in isotonic saline solution and cultivated in Sabouraud dextrose agar and sunfloweragar; Cryptococcus neoformans colonies were identified.

Palabras clave : Cryptococcus neoformans; Cutaneous cryptococcosis; Mayer's mucicarmín.
