Candida pelliculosa meningitis as an opportunistic infection in HIV: the first reported case.


:We describe the first reported case of Candida pelliculosa meningitis in HIV infection. This case highlights the risk of uncommon opportunistic infections in association with the immunocompromised and the importance of autopsy as a diagnostic tool in HIV infection. We discuss the epidemiology, diagnosis and management of C. pelliculosa, a non-albicans species which is rarely associated with disease, and review current literature.
