Cryptococcosis is a systemic infectious disease caused by Cryptococcus neoformans which is a yeast-like fungus. It can be one of the opportunistic infections in AIDS. Lymph node involvement is usually a part of disseminated disease. Isolated cryptococcal supraclavicular lymphadenitis alone is a very uncommon primary manifestation in AIDS. Once it disseminates, it can be life-threatening. Early diagnosis by fine needle aspiration is essential and reduces the morbidity and mortality.
