Tourism and specific risk areas for Cryptococcus gattii, Vancouver Island, Canada.


:We compared travel histories of case-patients with Cryptococcus gattii infection during 1999-2006 to travel destinations of the general public on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Findings validated and refined estimates of risk on the basis of place of residence and showed no spatial progression of risk areas on this island over time.
