Abstract: Cryptococcal meningitis has long been known to afflict immunocompetent patients in Singapore. We report the first identification of an isolate of Cryptococcus neoformans var. gattii from a Singaporean resident; this variety can cause invasive disease in the immunocompetent. Meningitis in a traveler returning from this area may be cryptococcal.
