Abstract
The diagnosis of invasive fungal infection (IFI) is particularly difficult in immunocompromised patients. Clinical and radiological findings supporting the diagnosis of IFI are very important. We presented a case report to emphazise the radiological findings of IFI as a diagnostic tool in an acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patient with rhinocerebral and pulmonary IFI.
