Cerebral phycomycosis is a rare disease. We describe two patients with unusual features of focal intracranial phycomycosis: a diabetic patient with chronic epidural abscess and a healthy individual with an isolated intracerebral abscess. Biopsy established the diagnosis in both patients. Treatment was successful in the patient with intracerebral abscess.
