Özet

A case of isolated sphenoid fungal sinusitis in an elderly diabetic patient is described. A coexisting mass lesion located in the sellar region was detected incidentally. Coincidence of these two entities represents a potential surgical disaster which may result in direct intracranial spread of fungal infection.
