A 30 year old man presented with history suggestive of a parasellar tumour. Computerised tomography of brain revealed a hyperdense lesion on either side of sphenoid ridge having extension to floor of middle cranial fossa on the left side, enhancing homogenously with contrast and suggestive of a meningioma. Paranasal sinuses and orbit were free of tumour. He did not have any predisposing factor to harbour oppurtunistic infection. Craniotomy and total excision of the lesion was done. Histopathology was reported as aspergilloma.
