    Samenvatting

    Cryptococcus gattii has becoming more prevalent in temperate climate zones, during the past decades. We describe a C. gattii serotype B infection in an immunocompetent Italian patient with sclerosing cholangitis. The patient traveled once to Eastern Canada and otherwise no other countries than Italy were visited. Molecular analysis revealed that the C. gattii isolate belong to genotype AFLP4/VGI and has mating-type alpha which is the most common genotype in the Mediterranean environment. The C. gattii strain was found to be closely related, but not identical, to other C. gattii strains from the Mediterranean area.
