We, herein present a case of intradural aspergillus abscess with flaccid paraplegia in a 41-year-old immuno-competent female. On her past medical history, the left pneumonectomy was performed for lung aspergilloma 7 months before admission. A magnetic resonance image disclosed a large intradural enhanced mass compressing spinal cord laterally from T9 to T10. She underwent extensive laminectomy(T8-T10) and removal of the granulation tissue. Postoperative aggressive medical treatment with antifungal agent(amphotericin-B) was done. Although her neurologic status is not fully recovered, no further progression of infection process is found up to the present.
