Mucormycosis is an aggressive, opportunistic infection caused by fungi belonging to the class of Phycomycetes. Rhino-oculo-cerebral mucormycosis is the commonest anatomical presentation of mucormycosis and is a potentially fatal disease. We report here a case of a 65-year-old diabetic female who presented with a locally invasive type of mucormycosis and was treated successfully by surgical debridement along with medical treatment (Amphoterecin-B and insulin).
