Abstract

A 55-year-old man presented with dementia and seizures of recent onset. A computerized tomography scan revealed a ring-like lesion in the left occipital lobe, which on resection was found to be a histoplasmoma. Cerebral histoplasmoma is rare and simulates a metastatic brain tumor. Only eight cases of this entity have been reported.
