Are you a health professional able to prescribe or dispense drugs? Microbiological relapse must be distinguished from paradoxical immune reconstitution syndrome in which symptoms recur but CSF cultures are found to be sterile.

Cryptococcal meningitis remains a major cause of HIV-related mortality worldwide, with the largest burden of the disease in sub-Saharan Africa, South, and Southeast Asia 1.

Other methods of decreasing ICP such as acetazolamide, mannitol, or corticosteroids should not be routinely used Similarly, PCR-based diagnosis of cryptococcal meningitis has not been widely developed given the high sensitivity, wide availability and low cost of CrAg testing.

The antidepressant sertraline provides a promising therapeutic option for neurotropic cryptococcal infections. Intravenous IV administration of amphotericin through a peripheral line often causes thrombophlebitis or peripheral venous thrombosis.

Therefore, administration of amphotericin over 14 days cannot only become costly but also resource consuming.
