A 60year old female presented with an acute abdomen in septic shock. With hyperamylasemia, and a CT scan suggestive of pancreatic abscess as a result of acute pancreatitis, a CT -guided aspiration was done which confirmed the diagnosis of a pancreatic abscess. The pus, which was sent for staining and culture, revealed the causative organism to be Aspergillus fumigatus
