Invasive rhinocerebral aspergillosis is very rare and commonly seen in immunocompromised individuals with a high rate of morbidity and mortality. It is an opportunistic infection and has a spectrum of presenting features from allergic sinusitis to active invasive disease. Here, we describe a case of invasive rhinocerebral aspergillosis in an immnunocompetent middle-aged woman. She was treated with systemic antifungal medications, but she ultimately succumbed to death.
