According to a 2009 study published in the Indian Journal for Sexually Transmitted Diseases, cryptococcus has a prevalence rate of 3.1% amongst patients living with the HIV in India. 


Cryptococcus is a fatal fungal disease caused by one of the two known species: Cryptococcus Gattii and Cryptococcus neoformans. It is prevalent in the soil worldwide and is associated with the bird droppings. The infection is airborne and is therefore inhaled. Most people who acquire this fungal infection are HIV positive, although, in rare cases, non-HIV people have also contracted this fungus, particularly those who are also immune-compromised. 


Some of the symptoms of the disease include:

Shortness of breath



Skin lesions



Change in mental status

After inhalation of the fungi, symptoms may appear anywhere after 2 to 11 months. If you experience any of the symptoms associated with cryptococcus as mentioned above, seek appropriate medical attention right away.
