A rare manifestation of aspergillosis in the central nervous system is its invasion through the sphenoidal wall into the sella turcica representing itself as a pituitary mass. The symptoms may be headache, visual defect caused by compression of the chiasma, hypopituitarism and diabetes insipidus. In the majority of cases only the postoperative histology leads to the correct diagnosis. A case of invasive aspergillosis was reported here with the clinical picture of a pituitary tumor and without underlying immunodeficiency.
