Abstract

The following is a case report of a cerebral Aspergillus abscess in a male patient predisposed to this disease on account of many years of alcohol abuse. After timely identification of the pathogenic organism, the patient was cured by stereotactic operation in conjunction with antifungal therapy using amphotericin B and 5-fluorocytosine. The origin and the starting point of the infection remain obscure.
