CT and MR findings of a case of brain aspergillosis with histopathologic correlation are reported. On both CT and MR images, there were multiple lesions in the corticomedullary junction (CMJ) that appeared to disrupt the cortical sulci and that were not enhanced by intravenous contrast material. In most of these lesions, there were centrally located structures that were enhanced by intravenous contrast material and that appeared to be continuous from markedly enhanced adjacent dilated cortical vessels. Histopathologic examination of the autopsy specimen showed multiple hemorrhagic infarcts in the CMJ with remaining dilated cortical vessels that had been thrombosed by aspergillus hyphae.
