Fungal infections of the CNS are becoming an increasingly serious problem in immunosuppressed patients. We describe three patients with malignant blood disease who in the course of systemic fungal infection presented cerebral involvement. The nature, site and extent of the cerebral involvement were defined by computed tomography (CT). Further, in one patient it was possible to follow the course of the lesion and assess the effectiveness of antimycotic therapy by CT because of its noninvasiveness and repeatability.
