Pulmonary cryptococcosis is usually underdiagnosed entity due its highly variable clinical presentation. In tuberculosis (TB)-endemic countries like Pakistan, its diagnosis is easily overlooked as there is a high degree of overlap in clinical, laboratory and radiographic presentation with TB. For definitive diagnosis fungal culture or molecular identification is required.
