• 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.
