Cranio-cerebral invasive aspergillosis of sino-nasal involving the skull base is rare and associated with a very high mortality due to its peculiarly fulminant clinical course. We present an unusual case of 55-year-old diabetic female who initially treated for phytophotodermatitis, but later on she developed massive invasive cerebral aspergillosis. Advances in diagnosis and management of aspergillosis with improved and early detection and more effective therapy have promised some success in the management of these devastating infections.
