The intrathecal immune response is reported in a patient with cryptococcal meningoencephalitis. CSF IgM and IgG levels were significantly related to the favourable clinical evolution. IgM response was specifically directed against the pathological agent, while IgG were mostly non-specific. The data are discussed and compared with the other chronic infections of the central nervous system.
