Aspergillosis of brain is very rare, and commonly seen in immunocompromised or immunosuppressed patient. Here, we report a cerebral aspergillosis condition in a late teen girl who is a Systemic Lupus Erythromatosis patient with steroid therapy. She developed headaches, vomitings, and convulsions. On the basis of clinical and neuroimaging, a diagnosis of cerebral tuberculoma was made, and she was put on anti-TB therapy, but she did not respond. Later, surgical partial excision biopsy confirmed the diagnosis. Her cerebral lesions responded with antifungal itraconazole therapy. The case will be presented with short literature review. Such a report in the literature is rare.
