Abstract

The study provides information about the increasing incidence of Cryptococcal meningitis after the AIDS pandemic. It indicates progression of HIV infection toward AIDS and is useful as a reference to starting antiretroviral therapy in settings where facilities for determination of CD4 counts are not available. It also confirms that the course of Cryptococcal meningitis in Indian patients is similar to most studies.
