Abstract

Invasive aspergillosis is one of rare causes of mortality for the immune-compromised patients. We present a case of invasive aspergillosis complicated by the occlusion of the internal carotid artery and cerebral infarction in a patient with diabetes mellitus. Although initial biopsy did not find the pathogen, the repeated attempts of sampling showed aspergillosis. Combination of surgical removal of necrotic tissue and voriconazole medication improved symptoms and reduced the burden of infection.
