Fungal brain abscess is a rare entity especially in an immune competent host. Here we report a rare case of Candida brain abscess in a 19 year old immune competent patient. The diagnosis was made by CT scan of brain and confirmed by microbiological culture. The patient did not respond to surgical intervention and antimicrobial therapy and succumbed to his illness.
