A 45-year-old immunocompetent man, tailor by occupation, presented with pyrexia of unknown origin since last 6 months. He was diagnosed to be a case of cerebral pheohyphomycosis caused by dematiceous fungi, Cladophylophora bantiana. Unfortunately, the patient succumbed to death before the confirmation of diagnosis. To conclude, apart from tubercular meningitis, cerebral pheohyphomycosis should be considered in differential diagnosis while examining the immunocompetent patients exhibiting chronic features of pyrexia of unknown origin.
