Abstract

Cryptococcal spinal arachnoiditis occurs in patients with meningitis and usually when they are immunocompromised. It is rare in children. We report a child without evidence of immunologic abnormality who developed paraparesis due to a primary cryptococcal arachnoiditis without meningitis and who improved with adequate therapy.
