Cryptococcal meningitis (CM) is the commonest life threatening opportunistic fungal disease in Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infected individuals. But there are very little reports of lymphadenopathy along with cryptococcal meningitis, although cases of pulmonary, Intestinal, Bone marrow and retinal involvement have been described earlier. Here we report a case of cryptococcal meningitis associated with generalized lymphadenopathy and hepatosplenomegaly.
