Aspergillosis of the central nervous system is an uncommon complication following neurosurgical interventions. The diagnosis is challenging due the lack of highly sensitive methods to isolate Aspergillus from surgical sites. We report a case of post-surgical aspergillosis that occurred after the resection of acoustic neuroma. The diagnosis was achieved by histopathology and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in brain tissue. The patient was successfully treated with voriconazole. We advocate the use of molecular techniques to improve the diagnostic yield of this condition. View this paper.
