Cryptococcus arboriformis (C. arboriformis) is a novel Cryptococcus species belonging to the genus Trichosporonales. This novel species was identified definitively in 2007 using D1/D2 26S ribosomal DNA gene sequencing. In this article, we present a rare case of central line-associated bloodstream infection caused by C. arboriformis with successful treatment of this infection.

Infections due to Rare Cryptococcus Species. A Literature Review
TLDR
A comprehensive literature review of all the papers describing infections due to rare Cryptococcus species referenced in the main databases could be informative and could help in the diagnosis and treatment of these infections.

TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis positioned Cryptococcus arboriformis in the Trichosporonales lineage and showed that it is closely related to C. haglerorum.

TLDR
Because clinical manifestations of non-neoformans cryptococcal infections are most often indistinguishable from Cryptococcus neoformans, a high index of suspicion remains important to facilitate early diagnosis and prompt treatment for such infections.

TLDR
A novel species named Cryptococcus haglerorum is proposed to accommodate strain CBS 8902 that assimilates n-hexadecane and several benzene compounds and Physiological characteristics distinguishing the novel species from some other members of the C. humicola complex are presented.
