Some fungi can occasionally cause meningitis, but the disease is very rare. It usually occurs when the immune system has been affected by disease, e.g. HIV infection, or by drug therapy.
Fungal meningitis often develops slowly and can be difficult to diagnose and treat. Cryptococcus neoformans and Candida albicans are examples of fungi that can cause meningitis.
