Intracranial aspergilloma is a dreadful CNS infection with nonspecific clinical manifestation and radiological features. Therefore, delay in the diagnosis is common, resulting in a fatal outcome in almost all the cases. We present how the diagnosis of this condition is overlooked if we do not follow the conventional medical rules of taking history and thorough preoperative evaluation. These clinicoradiological points can be of help in early diagnosis and better outcomes.
