      Abstract

      We present a case of brain abscess caused by Cladosporium trichoides which reappeared fifteen months later, in spite of a surgical procedure and antifungal chemotherapy. The importance of a complete neurosurgical resection of the lesion which determines the prognosis is emphasized. Based on amphotericine B, flucytosine, and itraconazole, the antifungal treatment is not fully standardized. Regular clinical and CT scan controls are necessary because of frequent recurrence.
