We report a case of cryptococcal abscess in an immunocompetent individual. She was found to have normal T-cell line with appropriate number of CD4, CD3 and CD8 cells. She was noted to have poor T-helper cell immunity which has been correlated to such kinds of manifestation in mice models of pulmonary cryptococcosis. We performed the Candida antigen and tetanus toxoid mediated T-cell assay to see the aforementioned point. Although a presentation of this kind has been mentioned in literature before, such reasoning has never been cited earlier.
