abstract

  • Cryptococcus is an uncommon cause of lytic osseous lesions that may mimic malignant neoplasms. Extensive periosteal reaction may support a radiologic diagnosis of primary osseous malignancy in rare cases. FNA with examination of Diff-Quik-stained slides may be employed for distinguishing cryptococcal osteomyelitis from malignant tumors and for prompt identification of the organisms.
