Abstract

Abstract.

Bipolaris is a dematiaceous fungus seen in the skin, nasal sinuses, and occasionally in the central nervous system. We present an immunocompetent female with bilateral dural-based abscesses caused by a Bipolaris species. The patient had no involvement of the sinuses with the fungus but was later found to have a significant Bipolaris infection of her biliary tree.
