The posttransplant outcomes and optimal management of patients with end-stage liver disease who develop cryptococcosis prior to transplantation have not been defined. We discuss these issues in the context of successful liver transplantation and pretransplant cryptococcal disease. Our report suggests that liver transplantation may be cautiously considered under the umbrella of fluconazole therapy in patients with end-stage liver disease and pretransplant cryptococcosis, provided that disease control is achieved with adequate treatment before transplantation.
