Abstract : A maltose, ammonium acetate, inorganic salts medium containing thiamine and glutamate was formulated for growth of Cryptococcus neoformans; from which growth levels of approximately 10 to the 9th power cells per ml could be obtained within 72 to 96 hours incubation. A complex medium (nutrient broth with maltose and thiamine) with comparable growth characteristics, was also recommended. Both media supported very well the growth of 11 of 13 strains tested.
