Abstract

Although abundant in nature, fungi are infrequently pathogenic in humans. CNS fungal infections in non-immunocompromised individuals are uncommon. We discuss here the case of an otherwise healthy black woman with an isolated mass of the cerebellopontine angle identified as Blastomyces dermatitidis, successfully treated with surgical resection of the mass and intravenous amphotericin B therapy.
