The case involved the successful management of cryptococcal meningitis in a 46-year-old female diabetic laboratory technician with approximately 3 g of AMB treatment in 1956. Third, a landmark study by Bennett et al. in 1979 introduced the rigorous methodology of comparative, randomized trials into antifungal therapy and particularly cryptococcosis. This study validated the efficacy of combination antifungal therapy for cryptococcosis (7). The study represented a major starting point not just for cryptococcosis but also for other invasive fungal infections.
