Cryptococcus neoformans is a rarely reported cause for osteomyelitis. We report an extremely unusual case of calvarial cryptococcal osteomyelitis in a 42-year-old sub-optimally immunocompetent male. This case discusses the atypical presentations of cryptococcosis in HIV-negative patients and its importance of early diagnosis.
