Arch Otolaryngol. 1979;105(4):212-214. doi:10.1001/archotol.1979.00790160046012

• Rhinocerebral phycomycosis is a serious and commonly fatal fungal infection. The causative organism, ordinarily a saprophyte, becomes pathogenic in persons who are made susceptible by coexisting, debilitating disease. We report a well-documented case of rhinocerebral phycomycosis where early diagnosis led to successful treatment, and we discuss important aspects of the clinical evaluation and management of such cases.
