Cryptococcus Antigen Serum Test

Introduction

The Cryptococcus Antigen test is a type of blood test used to detect the presence of Cryptococcus neoformans, a kind of fungus that can cause a severe infection called cryptococcosis.

Cryptococcosis can affect the brain, lungs, and other organs and can be life-threatening if not treated promptly. The test looks for antibodies to the fungus in the blood, indicating an active or past infection.

Who should take this test?

The test is recommended for anyone with symptoms of a Cryptococcus infection, such as fever, cough, weight loss, or headache. The test is also suggested for people with a weakened immune system due to HIV/AIDS, cancer, organ transplantation, or other conditions, as they are at a higher risk of developing cryptococcus infections.
