dc.description.abstractHere we present a case of a 41-year old immunocompetent female from central Maryland, who presented with new onset seizures. Magnetic resonance imaging of brain revealed a solitary ring-enhancing lesion. Stereotactic brain biopsy confirmed Blastomyces dermatitidis brain abscess. Patient's clinical course was complicated by voriconazole-induced pancytopenia that prompted surgical resection and amphothericin-induced severe hypokalemia necessitating change to high dose fluconazole. Four months after surgical resection, patient remains in radiographic and clinical remission. Copyright 2020 The Author(s)en_US
