C. gattii cryptococcosis is an uncommon ailment caused by the inhalation of a tiny fungus or contaminated dirt containing encapsulated yeasts. Cryptococcus gattii is a fungus that has the potential to cause cryptococcosis. Cryptococcosis commonly affects the lungs or the central nervous system, although it can affect other regions of the body as well. Meningitis produced by C. gattii and other Cryptococcus species is known as cryptococcal meningitis. C. gattii is primarily linked with trees, particularly eucalyptus, which are prevalent in tropical and subtropical climates. Unlike C. neoformans, C. gattii is not connected with birds and is more capable of infecting immunocompetent hosts.
