Abstract

We determined biovars and serotypes of 154 isolates of Cryptococcus neoformans from clinical and environmental sources from different areas of Spain. All clinical isolates belonged to C. neoformans vat. neoformans. Serotypes showed an irregular distribution. C. neoformans vat. gattii serotype B was isolated from necropsy specimens from goats with pulmonary disease.
