Torulosis of the central nervous system has been known for more than half a century and has been reported from almost every country in the world. As early as 1861, Zenker107 reported the case of a man who died as the result of a fungus infection of the central nervous system. It is possible that the causative organism in this case was Torula histolytica. Von Hansemann101 in 1905 reported a case of meningitis in which small gelatinous cysts containing yeast cells were present in the meninges. In 1916, Stoddard and Cutler's monograph91 established the clinical and pathological picture of torulosis.
