Aspergillosis of the central nervous system is an uncommon sickness, particularly if the patient is immunocompetent. In the immunocompetent individuals, the regular way for the fungus to access the CNS is diffusion by the blood from extracranial sites, commonly the lungs. In this report, a 44-year-old man with no history of recent surgery or immunodeficiency had an episode of falling. A cranial mass close to the cerebrum revealed to be as aspergillosis abscess throughout the operation. This case is showing the significance of assuming a cranial mass as aspergilloma in the differential diagnosis.
