The article focuses on the case of a 57-year-old man who was presented to the hospital emergency with a 2-week history of increasing somnolence, lethargy, anorexia, and headaches. He was said to have left-sided facial droop and left-hand clumsiness a day before his hospital admission. Multiple ring-enhancing lesions in his basal ganglia were shown through magnetic resonance imaging of his brain and a brain biopsy also revealed that he has Aspergillus fumigatu.
