• Rhinophycomycosis entomophthorae is a variant type of subcutaneous phycomycosis of the face that is caused by Entomophthora coronata. The case we describe was the first patient reported in the world literature, to our knowledge. His infection reappeared after an extended dormant period. Although his condition exhibited an early partial response to surgical and medical management, the condition became refractory to treatment.
