Abstract

Abstract: We report pulmonary cryptococcosis in an elderly man. His cat was found to have cryptococcosis 2 months earlier. Our case highlights the importance of an illness in a pet as a “sentinel event” warning to owners that they may be at increased risk for similar infection given common environmental exposure.
