Özet

The authors report of a case of pseudotumour caused by Candida species without evidence of any underlying disease. No portal of entry of the infection was found. Total removal followed by treatment with flucanazole resulted in a favorable outcome. We discuss the differential diagnosis of a huge calcified intracranial mass lesion without any soft tissue component.
