We report a case of Cryptococcus gattii infection in the UK in a 76-year-old woman on biologic therapy for intra-abdominal non-Hodgkin lymphoma. An incidental nodular lung lesion was found on a chest imaging and histology, culture and molecular mycology studies of the lobectomy specimen revealed the presence of C. gattii.
