Fungal Infections of the CNS

Fungal infections are far less common than bacterial infections, yet their clinical presentations are often strikingly similar. Fungal involvement of the CNS most often takes the form of either meningitis or cerebral abscess. Host immune status is central in determining which organisms produce illness in a given patient. Coccidiomycosis, blastomycosis, histo-plasmosis and most parasitic diseases generally occur in otherwise healthy individuals. Crypto-coccosis occurs about equally in healthy and immunocompromised patients, while candidia-sis, aspergillosis and mucormycosis are almost exclusively limited to immunocompromised or severely debilitated patients [23].
