Cryptococcal Infection with Ruxolitinib in Primary Myelofibrosis: A Case
Report and Literature Review
Cryptococcus neoformans (CN) is an encapsulated yeast that causes
disseminated and potentially life-threatening in immunocompromised
hosts. We present a patient with primary myelofibrosis on ruxolitinib
who developed disseminated disease due to CN. The report underscores the
importance of suspecting infections with intracellular pathogens in
immunosuppressed patients on ruxolitinib.
