This is a case of Aspergillus infection in a twenty year old male presenting as an insidiously growing intradural spinal cord tumour with signs of cord compression. There was no definite portal of entry and the patient had no signs of immunsuppression. It is believed that such a case has not been previously reported. The lesion resembled a benign tumour on preoperative imaging and intraoperative consistency and vascularity. The lesion was successfully and completely resected. MR images of this unusual lesion are presented.
