Cryptococcal choroidoretinitis and immunodeficiency.

Abstract:
A 30 year old man with Hodgkin's disease, clinically in remission, presented with blurred vision in one eye due to a choroiditis. He developed headaches 10 days after commencing oral steroids and was subsequently found to have cryptococcal meningitis. The meningitis and choroiditis resolved on antifungal medication. This is the first case of cryptococcal choroiditis recorded in the United Kingdom.
