Abstract: We describe the history of a 24-year-old immunocompetent man with an expansive lesion in the brain stem that, after many misdiagnoses, was found to be caused by a Candida albicans abscess. One year after surgery and 3 months of fluconazole treatment, the patient was asymptomatic and all image and laboratory tests were normal.
