People who have pets at home can get a disease called cryptococcosis. This disease can be found in animals, especially pets that live at home. This is the first sign that the disease is spreading in a certain part of the country or city. Even though the animals don't pass the disease on to humans, their disease shows that there's a good chance that humans could get Cryptococcus, even though the animals don't. It is important to check people who have lung and CNS (brain and central nervous system) problems if they have been to or lived somewhere where animals have been ill with the disease. Most of the signs and symptoms of cryptococcosis happen in the lungs, the brain, or both at the same time. The main signs are: Fever ,Malaise, Pleuritic pain in the back of the neck or chest (sharp pain that occurs over the area of inflammation and increases with breathing movements), A Cough is usually not very useful. Hemoptysis is when blood leaks out of a body part (bloody or blood-tinged sputum),Headache,Changes in vision (blurry or double vision, photophobia),There was sickness, and there was vomiting,Mental health changes (lethargy, confusion), Meningitis, Seizures, Coma, Some people may have changes to their skin (rash, pustules, nodules, ulcers).
