Abstract - A case of cerebral abscess due to Cladophialophora bantiana
Atul Aher, Vichal Rastogi

Cladophialophora bantiana is a dematiaceous fungus which belongs to family Phaeohyphomycetes. It is primarily a neurotropic fungus causing central nervous system infection. We report a case of a brain abscess in frontoparietal region in a diabetic patient caused by C. bantiana. Diagnosis was made based on the microscopy and culture of the pus material obtained after craniotomy. The patient died despite of surgical intervention and appropriate antifungal therapy.
